RWK Goodman advises the shareholders of ihorizon

Posted in Corporate, Employment

We have advised the shareholders of Horizon Accounts Limited, one of the UK’s leading accounting companies focused on the tech start-up ecosystem, on the sale of ihorizon to Cooper Parry, the UK accountancy and business adviser firm backed by Waterland Private Equity.

ihorizon is a leading London-based accounting firm specialising in innovative accounting and finance solutions designed to help tech start-ups reach their full potential. ihorizon's in-house development team has developed 'Alpha', a market leading secure and unified software platform that streamlines payroll, R&D tax credits and monthly reporting.

Cooper Parry works with entrepreneurial, fast growth businesses across the UK to help them grow, get up to speed with their tech and transform their culture. Cooper Parry received backing from Waterland Private Equity in 2022 to accelerate its expansion. ihorizon enhances Cooper Parry's tech and high growth team to provide full support to early stage start-ups as well as to Cooper Parry's existing portfolio of 200+ post Series A scaleups.

Our team was led by Ed Hoare (Corporate) and Michelle Waligóra (Corporate), supported by Remy Ormesher (Employment) and Ken Wong (Corporate).

Pratik Sampat, ihorizon’s CEO, says: “The team at RWK were 100% focused throughout the process and knew exactly what was needed to get to the next stage. They took care of the heavy lifting, kept us fully updated and ensured we focused on what mattered most. They were a pleasure to work with and would be a great partner for any entrepreneur going through an exit.”

Ed Hoare, Corporate Partner here at RWK Goodman, says: “It was great to assist the shareholders on this transaction and bring about the integration of the ihorizon and CP’s Tech & High Growth teams, which share many synergies. We are very pleased for our clients and wish Pratik and his team all the best.”
