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.
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
