BDO UK welcomes three new tax partners

Press release by BDO UK

Press release by BDO UK - Last year, revenues in BDO’s tax team increased by 20%, making it the fastest growing tax practice of the ten leading UK accountancy firms.  James Egert, who joins BDO next week (12 Sept), leaves EY’s London team where he headed up the UK tax performance advisory team. Specialising in SAO, tax strategy, risk and governance, James has significant experience in dealing with entrepreneurial mid-market businesses, as well as FTSE companies.

Mark Ellis joins BDO’s Manchester office after ten years at Deloitte. He is a highly experienced VAT practitioner, with specialist expertise in consumer markets and the public sector. In East Anglia, tax partner Phil Hall joins BDO from Grant Thornton where he led the region’s large corporate team. He will provide corporate tax advice to the mid-market and large-sized businesses, and has significant international experience.

Andy Butterworth, head of tax at BDO, comments: “The changing regulatory environment, and in particular the restrictions in the provision of non-audit services by auditors, has created huge opportunities for the tax team among our mid-market and large corporate client base up and down the country. 

“Investing in talent will continue to be a priority for us. We work in a profession where adding value and demonstrating expertise is the foundation for success. Having talented and passionate people like James, Mark and Phil will ensure we continue to remain an adviser of choice for our clients.”
