Sussex and South East accountants Carpenter Box has joined Sumer, a fast-growing UK accountancy and professional services group, which focuses on serving SMEs.

Sumer has become a top 15 UK accountancy practice in just 12 months, having established hubs nationwide led by eight leading regional firms.

Carpenter Box, with offices in Worthing, Brighton, Chichester, Crawley, Portsmouth and London, operates the South hub and sees being part of Sumer as an important step in delivering its ambitious expansion plans.

“As such, this decision represents a significant milestone in the Carpenter Box journey because it will enable us to enhance the value-adding services we offer to our clients, invest in new technologies, grow our geographic reach, and offer our people new and enhanced opportunities.”
