Independent tax consultancy, Forbes Dawson, has promoted three of its team to partner as the business looks ahead to future growth.
Michelle Hogan, Rebecca Bedford and Tom Minnikin will all be named partner on 1 May, having been with the practice since 2012. This news comes on the back of the firm’s shortlisting for Best Independent Tax Consultancy at the prestigious Tolley’s Taxation Awards 2020. Flying the flag for the region, Forbes Dawson is the only North West consultancy named in this category.
The company was established in 2012 and provides tax advice to businesses, entrepreneurs and high-net-worth individuals, as well as providing specialist expertise to other professional advice firms. In eight years, the team has grown from five to 20 and in its last financial year achieved a record turnover. The founding partners – Michael Dawson, Laura Hutchinson and Andrew Marr – launched the business after eight years within a large national practice as an independent consultancy with a firm focus on personal service.
Commenting on the promotions managing partner, Michael Dawson, said: “Michelle, Rebecca and Tom are talented and dedicated advisers and all three have built the trust of clients and colleagues alike. As the business goes from strength-to-strength, it’s fantastic to see how each has progressed through the firm as they help to drive the success of Forbes Dawson and successful outcomes for our clients. I look forward to working together and seeing what we can all achieve next after these truly well-earned promotions.”
Partner, Tom Minnikin added: “I’m really proud to have been part of Forbes Dawson’s success story to date and I’m looking forward to the next chapter. Our clients value our straight-talking approach and the ‘boutique’ level of service we offer. All of this allows us to provide high quality advice more efficiently than the large accountancy practices. For our professional contacts, they know that we can be relied upon to provide hands-on support and expertise. It’s this proposition which will continue to give us a real point of difference in the market.”
