The firm said he will work across all areas of the BHP tax department and will look to expand the provision of customs and Brexit-related advice.
Dean Pearson, tax partner at BHP, said: “James has a wealth of knowledge that he has gained throughout his career working with multiple people across a variety of tax jurisdictions.
“After spending the last four years in industry with supercar maker, McLaren Automotive, James will now apply his high-level commercial knowledge to our wide range of clients at BHP. We are thrilled that James has joined the team and we know that he will enhance our offering even further”
Houseman added: “BHP is Yorkshire’s largest independent firm and it has a really friendly team, a wide mix of clients and an excellent wellbeing programme – I am delighted to be back. Alongside their numerous award wins and a great reputation, I knew that BHP would be a great business to take the next step in my career.
“I am looking forward to developing within my new role and bringing my commercial knowledge and experience into practice.”
