Ken Munn - Carston Accountants
We started working with the Goldsmiths Group about 15 years ago. We were quite a small local practice in South Wales and with the assistance of the Goldsmiths Group have since built up a substantial South Wales business and also a West End practice. The advice, help and introductions have enabled us to undertake our growth programme with relative ease. We are delighted with the end results!

We started working with the Goldsmiths Group some years ago.
We were a local practice in the Manchester area and with the help of Goldsmiths have grown into a regional office covering many towns and locations.
The premier programme that we are on worked well for us in achieving our goals for expanding the practice.

I have personally known Ron Goldsmith and the Goldsmiths Group for something approaching 20 years. During that time we have had considerable help with our own practice and we have full confidence with the team. So much so that we now work together on a mutual project. Good people to deal with. Straightforward and honest.
Adam Perkin - Jolliffe Cork LLP
Goldsmiths have been advising our firm for 15 years regarding future plans and expansion. They keep us abreast of developments in the market and have recently made a successful introduction which we hope will provide the platform for a successful business for many years to come. Ron Goldsmith has very substantial contacts and knowledge of the marketplace and our affairs are dealt with on a confidential basis with integrity.

I have recently worked with Goldsmiths to help give our business growth an additional non-organic boost. They quickly found us three suitable businesses to enter in to negotiations with, and we ended up buying the goodwill of two of them. Goldsmiths supported us throughout the process and offered a proactive and approachable service. It was a great experience working with Goldsmiths and I would recommend them to any practice wishing to inject additional revenue in to their business.

We have been with Goldsmiths for nearly three years and have had two successful introductions in that time. Further leads continue to be passed through ourselves and the team are a pleasure to work with.

My wife died unexpectedly from cancer, we had worked together for many years. After much thought and prayer I decided in May 2014 that I would start to look at exit strategies. I had received emails and letters from Goldsmiths over many years and I felt they had the experience to help me in my situation. From the initial phone call I was put at ease.
An appointment was made for one of their consultants, Ed, to come across to see me. He listened to my situation and offered many ideas for thought. He was not pushy but gave me the opportunity to speak so he could understand my reasoning for a sale/merger and the longer term plan. Due to being a man who is not known for moving quickly it was really helpful to have Ed's advice and the process to follow. In the past my wife and I have always discussed everything together, things are different now and I needed some reassurance on the way forward, Ed was able to provide this.
Meetings were set up with several accountants over the next few weeks. Where possible Ed visited them to get a feeling for them as to whether we would 'fit' together. This meant that I was not having wasted meetings. Ed really seemed to understand my working practice and I am very grateful for all his time and effort. Eventually I was introduced to a four partner practice which seemed to fit well. After a couple of meetings Ed was able to advise on the best structure of the sale/merger and was happy to look at any documentation. The deal was agreed in early 2015 but delayed until April due to all the deadlines at that time of the year. Effectively the agreements were pretty much in place after only 6 months which, looking back, I was surprised how quick things flowed but did not seem to be put under any pressure.
Goldsmiths staff have offered an excellent service and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other accountants.
