Barnes Dennig and Bertke, Sparks & Kremer, have agreed to merge.

The combination is expected to close on Jan. 1, 2014. 

The new addition will allow Barnes Dennig to provide enhanced service to its Kentucky clients and will provide access to broader resources to the clients of Bertke, Sparks & Kremer. The two firms will operate under the Barnes Dennig name.

"This combination of talent and expertise will provide our clients with more of what they've always looked to us for - ideas, insights and exceptional service," Barnes Dennig managing director Steven Hube said in statement.  "In addition, we'll offer enhanced services to our Kentucky clients with the addition of the Bertke, Sparks & Kremer offices in Crestview Hills, Kentucky.”

"Our clients will benefit tremendously from the synergies that will result from this combination," noted Andrew Bertke, director at Bertke, Sparks & Kremer.  "We'll now have more brainpower to devote to solving the most complex tax and business issues that may confront the clients of either firm. And, we'll be able to continually improve our service levels since our combination will help us promote, recruit and retain the best people.”

"Since the official effective date is Jan. 1, 2014, we'll spend the next few weeks organizing our two staffs into one, client-focused organization in preparation for our historically busy season - from the first of the year through April 15," said Bertke.
