Prior to establishing Stanes Rand in 2001, proprietor Andrew Rand enjoyed twelve years at Thompson Taraz, six as a Partner. His involvement in both firms has enabled him to envisage the benefits of collaboration and he explains how this signifies far more than a simple name and logo change.
“Combining our highly complementary skills and resources will enable us to increase the depth and breadth of services to the benefit of all clients. More specifically, clients will have access to members of the Thompson Taraz team who possess technical knowledge and expertise in the highly specialised field of Fund Management – a skill rarely offered by mainstream accountancy firms. As specialists in both the property and high-tech sectors, an increasing number of our clients engage in schemes such as the Enterprise Investment Scheme, which often calls for Fund Management Services. Such clients can now be fully catered for in a seamless way – an offering that distinguishes us from the vast majority of our counterparts.
These are exciting times for all involved. With both parties embarking upon this collaboration from a position of strength, a solid platform will thus be provided for us to pursue new opportunities, build stronger connections for clients and accelerate our ambitions as a firm that delivers a wide range of services to businesses at all stages from seed to sale.
Our focus is very much on moving the firm forwards, albeit with a refreshed image in recognition of our new association, whilst retaining the core values and commitment to clients that have served us so well over the past 15 years.”
