Accountancy firm HURST has strengthened its tax advisory team with the appointment of Nia Thomas (pictured) as a manager.
Nia, 38, who lives in Altrincham, has 13 years’ experience as a personal tax specialist.
Welsh-speaker Nia has returned to the north west after three years at Dixon Wilson in London. She previously worked at Morris & Co in Chester and Ernst & Young in Manchester
Her career has seen her advise in particular high net worth individuals, including non-UK domiciled clients affected by increasingly complex tax rules in Britain.
Nia said: “I’m delighted to be back in the north west and to join the growing tax team at HURST. The firm has a varied range of clients and I look forward to working with them to advise on their tax matters.”
Rachel Murphy, who heads the HURST tax team, said: “Nia is a well-regarded specialist with extensive experience of advising high net worth individuals on all areas of tax.
“Her skills add greatly to our existing capabilities in helping our clients manage their personal tax affairs.”
Nia’s arrival follows a strong period of recruitment for HURST, which in recent months has expanded its corporate finance and business services teams with a series of appointments.
The firm has also established a specialist tax compliance team to help companies amid a crackdown by HM Revenue & Customs on tax avoidance and evasion.
