Chesterfield accounting firm announces promotions and expansion of its team
Shorts Accountants is pleased to announce the promotion of two key members of its Radius team, which advises on R&D and Patent Box tax relief.
Darryl Hoy has been promoted to technical director within the Radius team, while Emily Hurdley has been promoted to manager.
In addition, the Radius team continues to grow with the announcement of the arrival of Matthew Pierce within the firm, also as Manager. Matthew’s appointment will enhance the team’s continued growth and customer service.
This news caps a successful year for the Radius team, despite a difficult economic climate in the UK and around the world. HMRC investigations into claims for R&D tax relief are set to increase as the Treasury seeks to boost tax revenue. As such, offering expert advice to requesting companies is essential.
Scott Burkinshaw, Tax Partner at Shorts and Head of Radius, said, “Radius is committed to ensuring that innovative businesses in the region can fully claim their right to government-backed R&D tax relief. The talent and expertise of our team is at the heart of this, and the performance and contributions of Darryl and Emily have always been excellent.
“They will continue to play a vital role in providing and improving the Radius service. I am also delighted to welcome Matthew to Radius; his knowledge and experience will further strengthen Radius as the leading R&D specialist in the region.
