In response to continued demand for its specialist tax services, North East accountancy and advisory firm UNW has added to its pool of experienced tax practitioners with the appointment of Suzanne McArdle as Senior Tax Manager.

Formerly head of tax at Gentoo, one of the region’s largest housing associations, Suzanne brings with her a wealth of experience of operating in both industry and accountancy practice, having also previously spent 11 years with KPMG as Tax Senior Manager.

Joining what is already one of the largest specialist tax teams in the region, that includes VAT and employment taxes partners, Suzanne will use her expertise to help corporate clients manage their tax reporting and compliance as efficiently and painlessly as possible, whilst also providing advice to clients on a range of tax matters.

Suzanne said: “In my previous role at Gentoo, I was aware of UNW’s strong reputation in the marketplace and was particularly impressed by the variation and depth of their tax offering. I look forward to working with the team to further enhance this reputation.

“My four years of experience as a client of this type of service will prove invaluable to me in my new role, and had I remained in industry, UNW would undoubtedly have been the firm I would have wanted to work with. Learning more about the firm and the people involved reaffirmed my decision to join them and return to accountancy practice.”

Steve Lant, a tax partner at UNW, said: “Suzanne is a superb addition to the firm and I was delighted when she agreed to join us. Suzanne not only has significant technical skills and a broad range of relevant experience, but more importantly, she has a strong desire to help clients, build relationships and work as part of the team. This is an approach that is reflected throughout UNW.”
