One of south east Wales’ largest independent accountancy firms has expanded its tax team following another successful year.

Daniel Burton has joined Newport-based Kilsby Williams’ tax team as a tax manager, bringing with him a range of industry knowledge and experience.

Daniel has moved from HMRC, where he spent six years as a tax inspector.

Having graduated from the Tax Specialist Programme, Daniel has studied and has an in-depth knowledge of the wide range of taxes including corporation tax, capital gains tax, VAT, and employer duties.

Daniel’s experience at HMRC has equipped him with knowledge of how taxes and duties interact and operate, as well as providing him with an understanding of how HMRC’s processes and procedures relate to the imposition of the range of taxes.

Having resolved a number of highly complex tax issues in a range of areas, Daniel will utilise his knowledge and experience to help Kilsby Williams’ clients achieve success.

Daniel said: “I’m really enjoying working at Kilsby Williams and it feels as though I’ve joined a family. Everyone at the practice works together to help achieve the best results for our clients. The people here really care which is very different to a number of other places I have worked. I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s to come.”

Mary McDonagh, partner at Kilsby Williams said: “It’s great to have Daniel join the team. After a successful 2019 we are working towards great things for 2020 and therefore expansion of our team is vital. Daniel has fitted seamlessly into Kilsby Williams and is already proving a great addition and I have no doubts his work ethic paired with his wealth of experience will see him excel in his new role.”
