Haines Watts strengthens incentives and reliefs team

Leading accountancy firm, Haines Watts, has bolstered its tax incentives and reliefs service line, with a newly launched capital allowances offering.

The team will be headed up by David Holroyd who joins Haines Watts as a Director. With over 35 years’ experience exclusively providing capital allowances consulting services, David holds an enviable reputation with businesses and professional advisors.

He will be joining Jonathan Scott, Tax Partner, and Mario Minchella and Sam Moore, Tax Incentives and Reliefs Managers, who already work alongside some of the region’s most well-known names in construction and property.

Speaking on the growth of the team, Jonathan said: “Whilst most businesses and accountants will be aware of capital allowances in general terms, it requires a different exercise and skillset to survey qualifying assets and truly maximise the value of a claim – especially when claiming relief for commercial property.

“Our new multi-disciplinary team combines a deep knowledge of tax legislation with a proficient surveying process that captures costs that would generally go unnoticed. We’re looking forward to working alongside more clients to support them with their claims, from surveying assets through to claim submission.”

David Holroyd added: “Capital allowances in the UK have never been as complicated or as generous as they currently are, and many businesses need specialist assistance to simplify and take advantage of this valuable relief.

“I am delighted to be joining a national business with an outstanding incentives and reliefs team and am excited about the opportunities this presents to both existing and new clients and the capital allowances team. I am looking forward to further developing the capital allowances offering within the Haines Watts network and working closely with other offices to provide market leading specialist advice to clients.”

Haines Watts is a leading advisor to owner-managed businesses in the UK. As a Top 15 firm, they deliver a wide range of services and solutions that enable aspirational business owners to achieve their goals.
