The firm has appointed Kirsty Foster as senior tax manager. Foster has experience across a range of tax consultancy roles. After beginning her career at Deloitte PCS Limited, she worked her way up to senior manager with several independent North West practices, including Jackson Stephen LLP and DTE.
The firm said she specialises in helping individuals manage complex business and personal tax affairs and that she will work closely with the Manchester partners to support the “continued and rapid growth” of the firm’s Manchester base.
Colin Abrahams, tax partner, MHA Moore and Smalley, said: “Kirsty has a wide range of experience advising business and individual clients on their tax affairs.
“Since we opened our Manchester base in 2019, we’ve seen demand for our tax advice in the Manchester market continually grow. It’s great to have Kirsty on board and her knowledge and expertise will enhance further the firm’s already strong reputation in the North West for the quality tax advice it provides to clients.”
Foster is also a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation.
She said: “I believe that companies get the best from their people by providing a supportive environment where ideas, queries and solutions can be freely discussed. That is a key value of MHA Moore and Smalley and something that really attracted me to the firm.
“I am looking forward to working with the team in Manchester and also with the wider MHA network to support clients at a unique and challenging time for businesses and individuals.”
