The biggest independent accountancy in Sussex is now Galloways thanks to the merger of Galloways Accounting and Cardens Accountants.

Barry Carden and his team of 60 staff joining Galloways creates Sussex's leading accounting services business. Gallows is now a team of over 200 finance and business experts and the addition of the Cardens means they now have offices in Brighton, Haywards Heath, Horsham, Uckfield, Hove and Worthing.

My partners and I felt we were at the right time in our growth cycle to combine forces with another firm, as our clients’ needs for specialists in the areas of audit and tax grows as the business world evolves, personally I am delighted to have accepted the role of managing partner to bring my skills honed over the years to bear in the enlarged practice.

— Barry Carden, Founder of Cardens

Cardens has been a firm very much on our radar since the initial investment by Cow Corner in 2018 and we are delighted that they have joined the herd. Galloways are keen to continue to expand whilst maintaining a high level of client satisfaction and we believe Barry, his partners and team can help us to ensure this growth continues.
