Tax specialist Sarah Haley has re-joined accounting and business advisory firm Hurst as a manager.
Haley began her career at Hurst in 2006 as a graduate trainee. She qualified there as a chartered accountant and later as a chartered tax adviser. The University of Manchester graduate remained at Hurst until 2015, when she moved to KPMG.
Hurst said Haley has “extensive experience” of advising individuals and companies on a range of tax and compliance matters.
She said: “I really enjoyed being at Hurst previously. The variety and quality of work, and the exposure I gained, were second to none.
“I moved away to a Big Four firm and gained more compliance experience, but missed the advisory aspect and the variety of work offered by Hurst. It’s great to be back and it feels like I have never been away. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in again.”
Liz Gallagher, Hurst’s head of tax advisory, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Sarah back into our tax team. With her professional qualifications and experience, she is an excellent addition to the team providing high-quality tax advice to our clients. While Sarah’s last role was predominantly corporate-focused, she will now be able to apply her skills across the full breadth of taxes.
“She knows and understands our clients and the range of tax issues that affect owner-managed businesses. Her experience will hold her in good stead when dealing with our clients, who are becoming increasingly sophisticated.”
