Curtis will play a “key role” within the firm’s small business and tax department. She has previously worked for other Shropshire accountancy firms qualifying as an association of tax technician, before being promoted to managerial level.
At Dyke Yaxley Rachel Curtis will have similar responsibilities and will also be working closely with HM Revenue and Customs, as well as having regular client meetings.
Curtis said: “In my last role, I looked after a portfolio of approximately 150 clients, dealing with the completion of tax returns, and preparing accounts for sole traders, partnerships and companies.
“It’s a great opportunity to work with like-minded professionals who are all vastly experienced and who are all very happy to share and discuss their knowledge with colleagues. I’ve had a very warm welcome and I’m very much looking forward to getting to know the Dyke Yaxley clients and helping them to keep their accounts and tax affairs in good order.”
Dyke Yaxley managing director, Marie Bramwell, said Ms Curtis was a “valuable addition” to the team and has “already made an impressive start”.
She added: “We’re delighted that Rachel has joined us, and given the huge increase in business that our small business and tax team has been attracting, we’re sure she will play an invaluable role in helping us to deliver the services our clients are looking for.”
