Burgis & Bullock has made a key appointment in its corporate tax team.
Will Moore has been appointed as corporate tax manager.
He has more than 10 years’ of experience working in the financial services sector and makes the step up to management after first joining the firm in 2017.
Burgis & Bullock has offices in Leamington, Rugby, Stratford-upon-Avon and Nuneaton – with Will operating primarily from the company’s Leamington office.
Will is AAT qualified and nearing completion of his ACA qualification. He has worked across the firm’s larger clients since joining six years ago, with significant experience working with businesses in the motor industry.
Will, who lives in Brackley in Northamptonshire, started his career as an apprentice at a firm in Buckingham, carrying out a range of roles in accounts, audit and tax.
It came after a retail colleague recommended he pursue an apprenticeship in accountancy, after impressing with reporting and identifying discrepancies in the retail sector role.
Will said: “I’ve developed well as a professional since joining Burgis & Bullock six years ago and I’m pleased to be making the step up to a management role.
“The partners and senior team at the firm have played a key role in my progression and in particular Anne Rose, the former head of tax, has been integral to that development.
“Since joining the firm, I have been proud to represent the business to external audiences and will continue to do that. Burgis & Bullock has a strong track record of providing young people with opportunities for professional growth, and I will be looking to help continue that drive in my new role.
“We are seeking to expand the corporation tax team and it’s great to be a part of that.”
Will’s promotion to corporate tax manager follows the departure of Emma Fisher from the firm, who is moving out of the practice into a role in the education sector after 27 years with Burgis & Bullock.
Emma joined the firm as an 18-year-old trainee accountant and worked her way up to tax manager, and praised the firm’s internal culture and its approach to business.
“I have a huge amount of respect for the people I have worked with during my time at Burgis & Bullock and wish the firm and all the staff continued success,” she said.
“This new challenge comes due to a change in personal circumstances, but I will always look back fondly on my time here. The firm helped me to complete AAT and ACCA qualifications, while also giving me great experience across a wide range of clients and industries.
“I’ve worked with Will for a long time and he will be a great manager and important asset to the corporate tax team.”
Phil Stevens, Head of Tax at Burgis & Bullock, said: “Since joining the firm, Will has continually impressed the senior team at Burgis & Bullock and led by example with his quality of work and manner when dealing with clients.
“We wish Emma the best of luck in her new role and thank her for her contributions to the firm for more than 20 years.”
