Midlands accounting and advisory firm PKF Smith Cooper has recruited two tax professionals into new director roles, seeking to bolster the company’s specialist credentials in capital allowances and employment tax services, as team expansion plans continue.

Jack Bonehill, winner of Tolley’s Taxation Rising Star award 2023, steps into the role of employment tax Director, and Sam Parker-Hully adds over 10 years’ specialist experience to the tax team as capital allowances director.

Bonehill has spent 9 years specialising in employment tax, including 7 years working at a leading Midlands accounting firm. In 2020, he launched ‘The Tax Professionals Podcast’ to provide professionals in the tax industry with career support and guidance, and in 2023, he won Tolley’s Taxation Rising Star award in addition to being shortlisted for their Tax Mentor of the Year award.

Bonehill is experienced in helping businesses across the Midlands and surrounding areas manage their employment tax obligations and has specialist experience in the recruitment, logistics and construction sectors. In his new role, he will support PKF Smith Cooper’s current client base with all areas of Employment Tax.

Parker-Hully joins the Midlands firm with over 10 years of capital allowances experience from two Big Four companies. As director, he will help PKF Smith Cooper clients and contacts unlock and maximise tax relief on fixed asset expenditure, which will include advising on more complex areas of capital allowances related to the construction, refurbishment and acquisition of commercial property.

Commenting on his appointment, Bonehill said: “Since joining the tax team at PKF Smith Cooper earlier this month, I have been getting stuck into supporting our clients with their employment tax obligations and I am looking forward to further developing my tax leadership skills in this new role. One of the main reasons I joined PKF Smith Cooper was that they had a lot of young people in leadership positions, which was reassuring to me that my age wouldn’t be used as a reason to hold me back.”

Parker-Hully added: “I am excited to start a new journey at PKF Smith Cooper as Capital Allowances Director, where I will be able to offer my expertise to current and future clients and contacts of the firm. I look forward to guiding them through claims for capital allowances, an increasingly valuable area of tax relief.”

PKF tax advisory partner, Gary Devonshire, concluded: “We are pleased to have Jack and Sam on board at PKF Smith Cooper and we know that their skills and expertise will make them crucial members of our growing team, for the benefit of both colleagues and clients in our core Midlands markets.

“We are also delighted that our enhanced capital allowances and employment tax services will allow our tax advisory division as a whole to continue to grow and add to the exceptional growth we have seen in the last few years. These hires demonstrate the firm’s investment in tax and our growth plans also provide opportunities for interested tax experts who could be an asset to our firm.”
