BDO is continuing its investment and focus on top talent by appointing new Tax Partner, Erin Davis, to its Southampton office.

Joining the largest tax team in the region this month, Erin joins from PKF Francis Clark, having previously spent time with KPMG. Erin brings a wealth of knowledge in corporate tax, and insight into the business landscape in the Dorset area.

Erin comments: “I am delighted to be joining BDO in Southampton. The strength of the team here and the quality of clients is unrivalled in this region. I am excited to be able to play a key role in the future of this respected firm.

“I look forward to spending time helping our current and future clients succeed in this thriving and diverse business market place. One of my main areas of interest is the manufacturing sector, including working with companies operating and exporting internationally.

“Despite a challenging economic climate, manufacturing is still strong in the Central South region. These companies require quality professional advice and support to help them navigate through today’s changing business landscape.”
The tax team at BDO in Southampton is 64-strong, and has four dedicated Partners focused on the local area.

Erin continues, “BDO’s Southampton office has seen significant growth in recent years.  I’m particularly proud to see the investment in our apprenticeship scheme, with some impressive young people taking the first steps towards their professional qualifications and a long and rewarding career.”

Jane Mulholland, Head of Tax, BDO Southampton adds: “We’re keen to invest in the best quality talent so we continue to meet the needs of businesses in the region at a time of great change and uncertainty. We believe that a ‘new economy’ is needed which makes the most of the UK’s talents, skills and entrepreneurial spirit. Erin and the team will be using their experience and knowledge to support this in the Central South.”

BDO has released a New Economy document which details 22 suggested policies to help enable growth in the influential mid-market throughout and after the Brexit negotiations.
