BTG Tax, the former Shaws practice acquired by the Begbies Traynor Group this year, has appointed Rebecca Crowley as a tax consultant.
She joins the firm’s Edgbaston office in George Road from Wenham Major where she was a personal tax senior. Her career has also included working at Baker Tilly and at Lloyds TSB Private Banking.
BTG Tax is the new brand name for the firm’s specialist tax practice and incorporates the former BTG Financial Partners, Shaws and Coyle Clarke.
Rebecca, one of nine new tax staff appointed in the last three months, said: “I have been aware of Shaws, now BTG Tax, for many years as they have an excellent reputation and a family wealth management focus which goes above and beyond what most tax practices offer.
“I was keen to join the firm and was pleased when the opportunity to join BTG Tax came along at the right time for both of us.”
National tax managing partner Andrew Shaw said: “BTG Tax advises individuals and businesses on a wide range of specialist tax issues, with a significant amount of work derived from smaller firms of accountants, lawyers and IFAs.
“We are delighted that someone of the calibre of Rebecca has joined us and we believe this sends out a strong signal into the marketplace of our intention to grow our tax practice which is already an £8 million turnover business with significant potential to grow its revenue stream.”
BTG Tax has 61 tax experts across four locations in Birmingham, Manchester, London and Cyprus, assisted by 12 support staff. The group’s expertise is very much geared to niche areas and includes tax investigations, VAT, corporate transactions, HNWI tax planning, sports media and entertainment and international tax.
