Shaws Tax

Regent Assay advised on the sale of Birmingham professional tax advisory firm Shaws to Begbies Traynor Group PLC.

Founded by Andrew Shaw, Shaw’s now has 48 staff and an extensive client base made up of prominent high net worth individuals, UK and overseas companies. The firm is also the largest independent tax advisory practice in the UK.

Guy Hemington who led the deal for Regent Assay said:

“Andrew has thought carefully about the future direction of the business. The choice of Begbies Traynor will give Shaws the support of a larger professional services organisation whilst allowing it to retain its personal identity and personal service to clients. Begbies recognised the opportunity some time ago and were keen to secure the acquisition from the start. Andrew will become Chairman of the newly created tax division and we wish him and the rest of the team all the best for the future.”
