Carter Backer Winter joins Gravita

We’re delighted to announce that Carter Backer Winter has joined Gravita, now a Top 30 firm.

Continuing our mission to become the UK’s leading tech-enabled accountancy firm for growth businesses, we’re thrilled to announce our new partnership with Carter Backer Winter, a top-60 chartered accountancy firm based in the City of London.

For over 65 years, CBW has been providing business and financial support to individuals and businesses in the UK and all over the world. But more than that, they’ve created an environment similar to Gravita’s where clients are at the heart of everything they do.


Both firms are focused on offering clients the resources of a larger company, with the values and hands-on approach of a smaller firm. The values and culture, which CBW have built over half a century, align perfectly with Gravita’s. CBW has created an outstanding employee experience that complements our continued investment in people. The firm was recently ranked second in the UK accountancy sector’s best firms to work for in 2023, according to research by Best Companies, and is certified as a Carbon Neutral Operation. This demonstrates the importance placed on caring deeply and nurturing the team and the environment, that we both share. 


Gravita’s CEO, Caroline Plumb, said: “I’m delighted to welcome our new colleagues to Gravita as we continue our mission to become the UK’s leading tech-enabled accountancy firm for growth businesses. Gravita’s ambition is to be a pioneer in the next generation of accounting firms, embracing technology to deliver for clients, drive efficiency and be a leading employer for our people. We believe we can build a challenger firm in this space and our partnership with CBW is the next step on that journey.” 


Both firms share the view that investing in people is paramount to long-term success, and we’re focused on offering a platform to take team training, development and overall employee experience to the next level.

CBW’s audit, accounting, tax and business advisory team will be joining the Gravita family, meaning we now have some of the most talented people in the industry under one roof. This additional resource in talented team members allows us to focus more than ever on our clients and our people, who we couldn’t exist without.


Peter Winter, Managing Partner at CBW, said: “It’s clear that Gravita has the right team and platform to ensure that what we’ve built over the past 65 years continues to succeed and evolve. We recognise the value in creating a leading experience for our teams and clients, and we are thrilled to join Gravita as they push the boundaries on what a forward-thinking and enterprising experience can look like in the future.” 


With CBW joining Gravita, it’s another step on our growth journey. As such, we’re also thrilled to share that we’ve recently had another firm, Davis Grant, join the Gravita fold. You can read more about it here.
