Scottish accountancy firms Scott-Moncrieff and Ogilvie & Company have agreed to merge their businesses.

From 1 May 2016, the Oglivie & Co. team will relocate to the Scott-Moncrieff offices in Exchange Square, under whose name all future business will be conducted.

Scott-Moncrieff managing partner Stewart MacDonald CA said: “Our strategy for the firm is to grow income by 50 per cent over the next five years, through a mix of strategic acquisition and improved efficiency – all of which needs to be client led.

“Bringing Ogilvie & Company, a skilled and well-respected firm, under the Scott-Moncrieff banner will enhance our advisory capacity and expertise, and add value to our client offering.”

Scott-Moncrieff specialise in financial assurance, risk management, improving performance, taxation and wealth management.

They maintain offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.

Edinburgh-based Ogilvie & Company was founded in 2002 by David Ogilvie CA to offer trust management, business and personal tax advice and general business guidance services.

He said: “Joining Scott-Moncrieff is a significant opportunity for our team, and our clients.

“By giving our staff the chance to develop within the context of a larger firm with an international network, we are better placed to provide existing clients with an enriched service, while maintaining the high quality of personal service and client satisfaction in which we pride ourselves, and for which Scott-Moncrieff is renowned.”

In March last year, Scott-Moncrieff announced the acquisition of Callander Colgan, allowing the firm to build its service offering in the Highlands.
