Finch group-RET

Clevedon-based tax consultancy Finch & Associates is expanding its services with the launch of a new accountancy arm.

Experienced business adviser David Parmenter has been appointed to head up the new team at Finch & Associates, which specialises in R&D tax credits and US and UK taxation.

David joins the firm from Burton Sweet where he was a senior manager specialising in corporate accountancy. He takes up his new role as accounts manager at an exciting time of growth for Finch & Associates, which also advises businesses in the creative industries on claiming tax relief.

The firm’s managing director, Rachel Finch, said: “We’re delighted to welcome David to the team to head up our new accountancy arm. It means we can offer our R&D and US and UK tax clients a full range of accounting and business advice, providing a one-stop-shop for all their tax and accountancy needs while ensuring a fast turnaround on claims.

“I can think of no-one better qualified than David to run our new accountancy operation. He has great experience advising owner-managers on audit and compliance matters, and helping them achieve their business goals in a tax efficient manner. We wish David every success in his new role with us.”

Rachel explained the firm’s success during a challenging year “Our expansion has not come as a result of time sheets and clock watching, but through nurturing personal relationships with our customers.

“We have an open phoneline policy allowing clients to call freely without concern over hidden fees. At a time when things are challenging for many organisations and personal connection has become so highly sought after, we are proud of our approach and committed to offering this support to all our clients.”

Finch & Associates has also promoted chartered tax adviser Jo Boyer, who advises both personal and business clients, to the position of tax manager while colleague Shaun Bartle becomes an associate director.

Shaun’s focus will be on advising clients on their business growth strategy and R&D and creative industry tax credits.
