It’s hard to believe but JRW will turn ten years old this April.
Formed in 2007 by the merger of two of the oldest accountancy firms in the Borders, with the combination of the experience of the James Rosie partnership (1921) from Galashiels and Welch and Co (1924) from Hawick.
Happy Tenth Birthday
In the last ten years of JRW as a single entity, there has been a fair bit of change in just the last decade too, both for the firm and of course further afield too!
