Thomas Westcott is expanding its Somerset team with the appointment of a new director.
Tara Bell, who will be based in the Bridgwater office, brings more than 19 years of experience in accountancy to the fast-growing firm.
She specialises in landlord and property owners’ tax affairs, tax compliance and consultancy, inheritance tax planning, capital gains tax and personal tax issues.
“Local businesses need a trusted advisor and someone who knows where they are coming from,” said Bell.
“We are large enough to offer high-level expertise and a professional service but at the same time, we are easy to talk to, providing that personal touch with face-to-face relationships.
“I will be getting to know our clients across Somerset while looking to grow the business.”
Partner Phil Butterworth added: “Tara is well known in the area, and she compliments the types of clients that we already have and who she is used to.
“It is a very exciting time for the Bridgwater office of Thomas Westcott: there is a lot happening now and Tara brings her experience which will inevitably bolster our position in the town.”
