• Appointment: Duo of senior tax appointments

Duo of senior tax appointments at Mitchell Charlesworth

Phil Hartley and Phillippa Britchford have joined Mitchell Charlesworth as tax managers.

Hartley specialises in owner-managed business tax planning, corporation tax planning and research and development tax relief claims. He joins the company from Haleys Business Advisers.

Britchford returns to Mitchell Charlesworth, which has five offices across the North West, having spent 10 years working for other Cheshire accountancy firms. She’ll focus on personal tax clients, especially those with residency issues, in the senior role.

Managing partner Paul Wainwright says: “Our clients’ needs have become less about tax compliance and more about dealing with their tax planning.

“In response to this, we have further enhanced our senior tax team with both appointments, strengthening our well established specialist tax offering and enabling us to add even greater value and service to our clients.”
