Burgess Hodgson has announced that David Marcussen (pictured right) has joined the firm as a consultant specialising in taxation.
Marcussen, who trained with Deloitte in London, is a Chartered Tax Adviser and runs his own consultancy firm, Marcussen Consulting, based in Bath.
Taxation is a major strength of Burgess Hodgson. Their tax department includes a Chartered Institute prize-winner, a fully trained Tax Inspector, and 15 Chartered Tax Advisers.
The addition of David as a consultant will strengthen their existing tax department and enable them to draw on the wealth of experience and resources of Marcussen Consulting. The arrangement will also see the Burgess Hodgson team handling tax compliance operations for their existing clients.
The two businesses share a number of synergies: both provide high quality tax services to a growing number of national and international individuals, companies and trusts.
“Being a small firm allows us to be responsive to our clients’ needs,” said Marcussen. “We believe our business is innovative and vibrant with an enviable portfolio of entrepreneurial and creative clients.
“With the involvement of the Burgess Hodgson tax department, we will now be able to offer a more structured approach to tax compliance, making sure our clients’ affairs are dealt with efficiently and that taxation is minimised within the overall context of their business plan.”
Steve Sutton (pictured left), Senior Partner at Burgess Hodgson, explained: “Innovation has always been the lifeblood of Burgess Hodgson too: the practice prides itself on its forward thinking business advice and with the addition of David Marcussen as a consultant, we can continue to grow our reputation for providing cost-effective, intelligent business solutions and high quality tax expertise.”
