James Thompson, HURST Accountants
Associate Tax Partner
0161 477 2474

What I do

I provide tax advice to family and owner managed businesses across Manchester and beyond. I'm also a specialist in R&D Tax Credits, saving my clients thousands of pounds.

Where I've been

I started my career at Grant Thornton where I qualified as a CTA. I have also worked at Crowe Clarke Whitehill and Corinthian Tax, before joining HURST in November 2015.

What I've learned

The earlier clients can involve the tax team the better, for all concerned. And there is no such thing as a ‘quick tax question’!

Why we're unlike any other accountant

The combination of the enthusiasm and expertise of our staff makes us stand out from the crowd.
