Accounting and business advisory firm HURST has strengthened its tax advisory team with two new recruits.

Chartered tax adviser Sam Ryan has joined HURST from Crowe UK as an associate tax manager. He will be using his expertise to advise clients on a range of matters, including transactions, group restructuring and succession planning.

HURST has also welcomed Joseph Bourke to its tax team as a graduate trainee. He recently graduated with an accounting and finance degree from Manchester Metropolitan University.

Liz Gallagher, head of HURST’s tax advisory team, said: “We are really pleased to welcome these two talented individuals to the firm and in particular to our tax department.

“Due to the rapid growth in our client base, both in terms of numbers and sophistication, we are experiencing an ever-increasing demand for high-quality taxation advice, and we are constantly on the lookout for new additions to our highly-experienced team.”

Joseph is the latest graduate to join HURST’s training programme, following the arrival earlier this year of Ewan Lawson, Tirath Panesar and Miles Redgrave as trainees in the business services department.

Meanwhile, Jack Skilton has joined the HURST Digital team on a full-time basis after being seconded from the business services team. He joined HURST in 2017 as a trainee chartered accountant.

HURST created its specialist digital team in 2018 to support companies in embracing technology to drive improved performance and efficiency. It is led by Jo Gibson, a partner in the firm’s business services team.

The digital team works with owner-managed companies across the UK to review their operations and implement bespoke digital strategies, including making better use of data, new business reporting methods and the integration and automation of processes. The team also helps businesses to meet the requirements of the government’s Making Tax Digital legislation.

HURST, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, focuses on advising entrepreneurial owner-managed companies with turnover of £5m and above.

Clients including leading entrepreneurial businesses such as Kinaxia Logistics, M&I Materials, London Lash, Beechfield Brands, Duerr’s, Oliver Valves and Delamere Dairy.
