Your Partner in Tax: we’re delivering on the message

The team at Markel Tax were delighted to win Best Independent Tax Consultancy firm at last week’s Taxation awards. Central to our success was the ‘Your Partner in Tax’ theme that ran through our entry submission.

But what does Your Partner in Tax mean to our accountant partners?

In short, it’s a mantra that drives our strategy, and the way we like to support our clients. For our accountant firm partners it means that we help to:

  • Protect their practice and clients by reducing the cost and impact of HMRC investigations through a combination of our fee protection insurance, Tax Advice line and Tax Investigations specialists

  • Retain their clients by working collaboratively as a trusted partner with a ‘no conflict’ solution that extends the services they are able to offer, and reduces the need for clients to look elsewhere for advice

  • Grow their practice by collaborating with us on complex client tax problems and developing their technical skills at the same time

Delivering on these objectives is made possible through our concerted and ongoing effort to build a team with exceptional depth and breadth of expertise. We are able to support across the full range of requirements from employer solutions and tax investigations through to owner-managed businesses and VAT.

Moreover, 2019 proved to be a milestone year; one that saw three separate Markel-owned tax businesses come together under the single Markel Tax brand. The re-branding of Abbey Tax, Accountax and Gabelle meant team members were formally aligned under one operational structure and brand.

The change was carried out with no client disruption and, as a single Markel Tax brand, we are clear on our strategic path and aim to be the accountant’s champion – always there when needed and helping to solve tax problems, no matter how complex, messy or convoluted!

We now have over 60 highly experienced and qualified tax consultancy advisers, offering a comprehensive range of services to accounting firms across the UK.

Our ambitions are undiminished, even with the current Covid-19 challenges, and we are determined to remain Your Partner in Tax for years to come.
