Moore Kingston Smith unites with WMT

5 June 2024 / Insight posted in Press releases

It’s a pleasure to share that we’re joining forces with specialist hospitality firm, WMT, a move that scales our collective hospitality sector capabilities while leveraging our existing presence in St Albans.

WMT’s six partners and 78 people will join our St Albans team, with their clients benefitting from our wider firm’s comprehensive range of services and solutions, and their teams enjoying the enhanced career development and progression opportunities that a growing organisation of our size offers.

The merger will bolster our growing leisure, hospitality and travel group, which provides a range of accounting and advisory services for businesses of all sizes, from start-ups to large private and public companies.

WMT is a leader in the hospitality sector, working day-to-day with around 350 restaurants, pub groups, bars and hotels across the UK, particularly in and around London. They are widely recognised for their advice, implementation and management of ethical tronc schemes (the distribution of tips, gratuities and service charges), maximising the available reliefs, as well as motivating and incentivising waiting and service teams.

Like us, WMT has a strong presence in St Albans and the surrounding areas, providing businesses, charities and individuals with audit, accountancy, tax and advisory services, complementing our offering for the local market.

To continue meeting the evolving needs of our clients, part of our growth strategy is to join with firms that fit with our culture and approach. WMT shares our vision for sustainable success, putting their people and clients first, and helping all those they collaborate with achieve their goals.

Matt Meadows, Managing Partner of Moore Kingston Smith comments: “Joining forces with WMT’s highly skilled team combines our collective strengths, solutions and expertise, supercharging our shared commitment to supporting the ambitions of our clients and people. Uniting is a real win for our clients in the hospitality space as well as the St Albans market, and a natural next step in our growth plan.”

Andrew Williamson, Managing Partner of WMT said: “Becoming part of Moore Kingston Smith is an exciting move for us. While our clients will benefit from access to the firm’s diverse services, this also provides additional opportunities for our teams’ professional endeavours. It brings the national and international expertise of the Moore Global network to our clients and people alike.”

The move further benefits our clients with the expertise and additional resource the WMT team provides, and together we look forward to bringing further opportunities to all we work with.
