Independent paper merchant, Rosefox has been a successful family-run business for 32 years and it has relied on Haworths for help and advice on all financial matters since managing director, Gale Spibey established the company more than three decades ago!

Explains Gale: “I started the company with a business partner and built it from a standing start. From the outset, we relied on Haworths for help with our accounts, wages, tax liability and any financial matters relating to the business.

“After 32 years, Haworths’ service is just as efficient and proactive as ever and, because we have worked with them for so long, they know our business inside out, putting them in an excellent position to advise us.”

Alongside the routine requirements of providing a comprehensive accountancy service for Rosefox, Haworths has also been involved in major projects at the company.

The most significant of all was Gale’s decision to buy his business partner out of the company in 2007.

Gale continues: “The transaction was very amicable and my former business partner and I are still good friends, but Haworths’ help in ensuring that the buyout went smoothly was invaluable.

“The Haworths team helped us value the company and navigate the tax implications of the deal, ensuring that we came to a fair and commercially sound agreement that has left the company in great shape.”
