We’re open for business

Forbes Dawson launches

Following our recent move from BDO LLP we are pleased to announce that Forbes Dawson LLP is open for business and we are now comfortably installed in our new Altrincham office.  In summary the team’s mission is to continue to provide high quality specialist bespoke tax advice to high net worth individuals and their concerns, including companies and trusts.  We hope that the move to our new ‘boutique’ firm will allow us to achieve this in a focussed and friendly way.

At Forbes Dawson LLP we will focus primarily on the tax affairs of individuals and owner managed businesses.  We will also work closely with other professionals , in particular other firms of accountants, to support them and add value to the expertise that they can provide.

Forbes Dawson was set up (in its first incarnation) by Michael Dawson almost 12 years ago to provide specialist tax advice to successful entrepreneurs.  Our success led to a takeover by Numerica plc, which was subsequently acquired by BDO LLP.  Although Michael and his team took a lot of positives from working at a large firm, most clients said that they preferred the more personal service of the original Forbes Dawson to a larger firm.  This feedback, along with the strong team, was what finally led Michael to ‘reincarnate’ the old firm.

We are confident that the new firm will be even more successful than the old one as it comprises most of the original key members, who have all consolidated their already strong knowledge over the past 10 years.

We have ambitious plans to expand our team and widen our service offering over the forthcoming months to build a national reputation in our field. Our business has been built on recommendation  of our skills in giving practical and proactive advice . Please recommend us to your friends and contacts!
