One of the UK’s top tax professionals has joined national accountancy group UHY Hacker Young at their Nottingham office.
Simon Browning has joined from BDO where he was Head of Tax in the East Midlands. He was also named as one of the top ’40 under 40’ tax professionals in the UK by Tolley’s Tax Journal last year.
The 36-year-old tax partner joins UHY Hacker Young with a wealth of experience gained during his time at a big four and top ten firm over the past 15 years.
Phil Oliver, managing partner at UHY Hacker Young’s Nottingham office said: “In appointing Simon, we have one of the country’s top young accountants joining our ranks.
“Simon has significant experience in dealing with family and owner managed businesses, which bring with them a variety of challenges requiring dynamic skill and experience to advise and help them.
“He is perfectly suited to add real value to UHY Hacker Young’s clients and other similar businesses in the East Midlands; we are delighted to have him on board.”
Simon Browning said: “UHY Hacker Young has the feel of a traditional and trustworthy firm, but also boasts all the benefits of a national forward-thinking organisation providing innovative solutions for its clients.
“The team here is really strong, but I’m sure I can bring something extra to the firm and help us to cement our position as one of the city’s leading accountancy practices.
“As well as my experience of transactions and shareholder planning, I have built up a strong profile and network in the TMT (technology, media, telecommunications) and bioscience sectors, which I hope to build on at UHY Hacker Young.”
