VAT Specialist Appointed at Carpenter Box
Dan Hobbs has been appointed as an Associate in the Tax Services Group at Sussex-based chartered accountants and chartered tax advisers, MHA Carpenter Box.
Dan’s accountancy career spans 14 years. Having trained in accountancy he went on to specialise in tax, so is both a Chartered Accountant and a Chartered Tax Adviser.
As a new member of the firm’s Tax Advisory team, Dan will provide advice to clients in a wide range of businesses and with a particular focus on specialist VAT advice, one of the most complex areas of taxation.
Dan looks to identify tax planning opportunities for his clients, helping them to become tax-efficient. His wide experience around accountancy and tax means that he is able to combine both sides, to give business advice that is really joined up.
Dan explains: “I have always worked in the Worthing area and was very familiar with the fact that MHA Carpenter Box is a progressive firm with a very good reputation. Its large client base spans many sectors. I’m confident that I can add further strength to the firm with my wide accountancy knowledge and, in particular, the specialist VAT advice that I am able to provide – a specialism that is quite rare in the accountancy profession.”
Dan lives in Worthing and outside of work he is a keen Formula 1 fan and cinema buff enjoying films ranging from sci-fi to comedy.
