Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Neil brings years of tax knowledge to growing team of consultants at Newby Castleman

Leading chartered accountancy firm Newby Castleman has bolstered its Personal Tax team by taking on an experienced Tax Consultant to advise its clients and help prepare for the introduction of Making Tax Digital.

Neil Kinnerley, from Wigston, has 24 years of accountancy experience as a result of working across the UK for several different firms, and has spent the last 15 years living and working in the Leicester area. He will be based in the firm’s Leicester office on Regent Road.

Neil, 43, is being brought in as Newby Castleman’s Personal Tax team expands, as a result of the success of businesses in the area and to prepare for changes to the tax system.

The married father of two said;

“I’m delighted to have started with Newby Castleman, as it’s a well-established and respected accountancy firm that is leading the way in Leicestershire. Businesses in the city and county are enjoying a real spell of success right now, meaning more affluence locally, leading to more work for personal tax consultants such as myself.”

Leicester was recently named the second best city in the UK in which to set up a business (after Aberdeen), based on factors including commercial rent costs, rates of growth and start-up survival rates after five years, in a report for the Centre for Entrepreneurs (CfE).

Jacquelyn Kimber, Tax Partner at Newby Castleman, said:

“Neil is a highly experienced accountant with a broad range of knowledge on Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax and the approaching changes which will be brought in as a result of Making Tax Digital. We’re delighted to have him on board and I look forward to working with him.”

Making Tax Digital is a government initiative that sets out a vision for the end of the tax return and a transformed tax system by 2020. HMRC states that the main goal of Making Tax Digital is to make tax administration more effective, efficient and simpler for taxpayers.
