SAMPSON WEST UPDATE: A contract for the sale of Sampson West (SW) to Sampson West Accountancy Ltd (SWAL) was completed on Friday 1 March 2019. Under the sale all of the current staff will be transferring to SWAL which will succeed to the practice of SW and trade under that name. In particular Nick Hinman & Janet Peers who have worked at Sampson West for 30 years and 25 years respectively will be staying and working at SWAL as will our partners Lyndsay Pester and Nick Hickling. Len West and Mike Sampson will be working on a 2 day per week basis for at least the next two years. It is intended that the change of ownership of the practice will be seamless so far as our clients are concerned. All the work that has hitherto been done for clients will continue to be done at the same charge out rates and by the same staff and partners.

Quite independently of the sale of SW to SWAL, the lease of our current premises at Mitre House expires on 30 April 2019, our landlord is then to carry out a total refurbishment of the building as the leases of all floors of the building fall in and are not being renewed. SWAL will practise from Mitre House for the remaining 2 months of the current lease and thereafter on 1 May 2019 SWAL will be relocating to 39a Welbeck Street, London, W1G 8DH. Neither our telephone numbers nor our e-mail addresses will be changing but will remain as currently.
