Abbey Tax and Accountax Combine to Become Markel Tax

Markel has aligned its two existing tax businesses under its parent brand, creating a new division, Markel
Tax. The new brand of Markel Tax will go live from May 1, incorporating both the Abbey Tax and Accountax
businesses. The name change is part of the company’s strategy to offer a comprehensive range of tax,
insurance and legal services to UK SMEs under a single UK Markel brand.
Following the name change, it will be business as usual for Markel’s clients, accountants and affinity
partners. Fee protection insurance and tax consultancy services will continue to remain at the core of Markel
Tax’s proposition - the personal support and flexible expertise their clients have come to expect will not
change.
“Both Abbey Tax and Accountax have been part of the Markel family since 2014,” said Neil Galjaard,
divisional managing director at Markel UK. “This name change represents the coming together of two
respected brands within the market to offer more capacity and expertise to our clients.”
Markel Tax is integral to Markel’s Expect More ethos. It sits within a wider strategy of building a
comprehensive and aligned professional services support capability that accountancy firms can provide to
their business and personal clients.
“Our ambition remains to be best-in-class in the sector by providing our clients with a skill-set that matches
their needs,” Galjaard concluded.
Markel’s specialist tax consultancy firm, Gabelle, will continue to operate as a division of Markel Tax under its existing name.
