Hentons appoints two new tax advisory managers

The group has appointed Luke Pickering and Connor Smith as tax advisory managers

Hentons, a Yorkshire-based chartered accountancy and business advisory firm, has added two new appointments within its specialist tax advisory team.

The group has appointed Luke Pickering and Connor Smith as tax advisory managers. 

Pickering is a qualified accountant and tax advisor with “more than 16 years industry experience”. 

He initially worked as a general accountant before moving into tax planning. Pickering specialises in “providing advice around trusts and inheritance tax and is an expert in planning opportunities for business owners, as well as families with existing trusts”.

Meanwhile, Smith joins from accountancy firm Shorts, having qualified as a chartered tax adviser five years ago. 

He assists business owners with all aspects of their affairs through acquiring or incorporating the business, tax efficient advice throughout ownership and then an eventual exit plan from the business. 

Simon Roberts, tax partner at Hentons, said: “Luke and Connor are excellent additions to our team. They have the right skill sets, experience and personality to really deliver for our clients. Our service is very bespoke and having the right people deliver that advice is very important. 

“The pandemic has made us all much more aware of the risks of not planning for the future and over the last 12 months we have increased the size of our team to meet the increased demand for tax advice that our clients want and need as they adapt to a post-Covid world.”

Henton employs a team of 120 at offices in Leeds, Sheffield, York, Thirsk, and London.
