AAB announces merger with Sagars to expand UK regional presence

Anderson Anderson & Brown (AAB), the tech-enabled business critical services group, today announced a merger with Leeds-based independent accountancy firm Sagars to expand its UK regional presence in line with its ambitious growth plans.

The two firms are on track to deliver a combined £40m+ revenue in the current financial year with a clear strategy in place to deliver £70 million group revenue by 2026, fuelled by recent investment from August Equity.

Sagars’ complementary geographic presence will further enhance the wider AAB Group as a key player in the accountancy and business services market in the UK, adding Leeds to its offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and London.

The group’s combined technology and talent – including 450+ team members across AAB and Sagars – will make for one of the UK’s strongest, most expansive portfolios of business services, including audit, accounting, tax, payroll, HR, consulting, wealth and corporate finance.

Commenting on the news, Chief Executive at AAB, Graeme Allan, said: “We have worked closely with Chris and the Sagars team over the last 10 years, and they are aligned with our way of thinking. Like us, they are driven by a passion for helping people (clients and team members alike) achieve their goals. We are hugely excited about the opportunity Sagars presents in Leeds and this merger enables us to support an even wider range of SME and enterprise clients across the UK.”

We were attracted by AAB because we both have a clear focus on delivering awesome client service, investing in and developing our people and expanding our portfolio of tech-enabled services for the SME and enterprise markets.

We have no doubt that our complimentary skills and service lines will mean that together, we will be able to do more for our clients, whilst providing great opportunities for all our team in a fast-growing business services group that is highly differentiated in the market.”

AAB and Sagars are both members of Accelerate – a community of likeminded accountancy firms – and through it to Crowe Global which gives both businesses access to a network of accountancy firms in more than 130 countries around the world.
