Nolan Accounting Center, a Greenfield-based accounting firm that focuses on small business clients, has acquired West Allis-based Mitter Accounting & Associates Inc. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Janice Mitter, former owner of Mitter Accounting, and her three full time and six seasonal employees have become employees of Nolan Accounting Center, said Timothy Nolan, president of the company.
Mitter Accounting’s former West Allis office has been closed, with all operations consolidated into Nolan Accounting Center’s Greenfield offices. With the addition of the Mitter Accounting employees, Nolan Accounting has 22 full time employees and about 11 seasonal workers.
Before the acquisition, Robert Nolan, founder of Nolan Accounting Center, and Janice Mitter knew each other professionally for many years, Nolan said. The pair began talking about the acquisition in June, and the transaction closed Oct. 1.
“They knew each other’s practice,” he said. “We work on similar matters, we’re both focused on small businesses. Mitter) offered payroll services that we could automate, and we can do the same thing with income taxes.”
