We welcome Carters staff and clients to EQ, following our merger on 1st April 2015. EQ now comprises over 100 staff, including 15 partners, based in our four offices in Tayside and Fife.
The newly merged firm is estimated to achieve a turnover in the first full year in excess of £6.5 million, and is expecting to increase staff numbers through growth across all areas of the practice.
more than equal to any challenge
We are one of the 20 largest accounting practices in Scotland, and we welcome your interest in EQ. Whether this is perhaps as a client or future team member, we would be delighted to hear from you.
If you have a business, finance or taxation query, we would love to help. Take a look at our Core Services and our areas of specialism - you may be pleasantly surprised by the strength of our technical support.
What our clients have to say is important, and you may find their comments interesting and informative. They are the best judges of our skills and our service levels, and we feel very proud to have such strong supporters.
