Tony Bayliss, senior partner at DSG, said: “Our tax team has remained extremely busy over the last 12 months, despite the impact of COVID-19 on the broader business community.

“Mark’s elevation to partner is therefore well timed and I am also delighted to announce the well earned  promotions of both David and Rob. The continued investment in, and advancement of, our people is vital in ensuring we continue to provide our clients with the best advice and quality of service.”
