Champion Accountants expands R&D tax team

October 31st, 2018

Champion Accountants’ Manchester office has welcomed group tax planning associate, Martin Frain, into its specialist Research & Development (R&D) team to support the growth in tax relief claims.

Martin played a key role in Champion Contractors’ expansion into Scotland earlier this year and spent the past six months coordinating the opening of its new Falkirk office.

Martin first joined Champion Contractors in March 2010 and moves to the Group’s specialist tax division to support its R&D clients and manage the growing number of tax relief claims, as well as focusing on wider tax planning projects.

To date, Champion Accountants has helped SMEs across the UK claim more than £21m in R&D tax relief, with a 100% success rate.

Having completed his AAT with Champion Group, Martin is now working towards his ACCA qualification. He said: “Now that the Contractors’ Scotland office is up and running, I’m ready for a new challenge.

“My focus will be on our SME clients, ensuring that claims are dealt with professionally and that we maximise each claim’s full potential, whilst continuing to build Champion’s reputation as the go-to source in R&D tax relief.”

Group tax director, Gill Molloy, adds: “It’s great to welcome Martin on board. The continued success of our R&D Service is down to our team of qualified, professional and committed tax advisors.

“Despite the rise in claims, R&D tax relief is still underutilised by many SMEs and recruiting Martin lays the foundation for further growth; allowing us to provide tax relief and specialist tax planning to a larger portfolio of businesses.”
