Accountancy firm MHA Moore and Smalley is reporting annual turnover up 7% to £17.77m for the 12 months to March 31.
The North West practice, which opened its Liverpool office at 20 Chapel Street in the heart of the city’s commercial district in November last year, has now seen four successive years of income growth.
MHA Moore and Smalley, which employs 320 partners and staff across Lancashire, Cumbria, Merseyside, Manchester and the East Midlands, is reporting a growing demand for specialist cross-border tax and VAT advice. There are six full-time staff in Liverpool with more planned.
Although independent, the firm is part of MHA, the association of eight independent UK accountancy and business advisory firms, and the Baker Tilly International network of which it is also a member.
Managing partner Graham Gordon said: “I’m incredibly proud of our whole team for helping to achieve these record financial results for the firm. Every employee has played their part.
“We’ve benefited from being able to attract experienced, quality people, investing in senior hires and our trainee programme. We currently have more than 60 trainees with us across the North West.
“Being able to offer trusted advice in specialist areas is what continues to set us apart. We’ve brought in new people to expand our VAT and indirect tax team to offer advice on Brexit issues.”
MHA Moore and Smalley achieved an overall satisfaction score of 96% in its annual client satisfaction survey. Mr Gordon added: “Our growing digital solutions team has been a major asset in helping owner-managed businesses get to grips with the Making Tax Digital rules.
“Meanwhile, our payroll services team has also grown through helping businesses comply with auto-enrolment pensions rules and GDPR issues.”
