Top Ten Tax & Trust Accountants

‘The complexity of our tax system is now combined with increasing HMRC scrutiny,’ observes Paul Ayres, who oversees all manner of HNW affairs for BDO from his role as head of private client services.

Ayres deals with a ‘real mix’ of cases, which has led to growth in billings for his team of more than 10 per cent in the past year.

Judging from the accolades his leadership has received recently, including the STEP Accountancy Team of the Year award, there is even more room for optimism for 2020 and beyond. ‘There’s plenty more to go,’ he predicts.

Such enthusiasm is vital for a firm that focuses on entrepreneurial clients and their businesses. Ayres recalls the coming together of the previously disparate units serving private clients at BDO when he joined in 2001: ‘It led to a period of phenomenal growth as we continued to hire and expand throughout the recession.’ A merger with Moore Stephens earlier this year has continued that growth.
