The West Midlands Tax Group 6 October 2022

This is to say thank you to all attendees at our first networking event for The West Midlands Tax Group (WMTG) on 6 October 2022 held at our offices in Birmingham.

The main objective was to not only provide a networking platform but also business development opportunities, knowledge and learning and to make it fun amongst tax and accountancy professionals. 

It was great meeting you all, we had a good turnout of 15 attendees and hope for more for the next event. It was a fantastic opportunity to put names to faces, as well as catching up with some old friends. There were positive contributions from all speakers and the event raised a number of tax and accountancy related issues providing plenty of food for thought for the future.

The main objective for the networking event was to create a safe space for likeminded individuals to network and share their thoughts and experiences which we believe was achieved. A number of attendees provided positive feedback on the day and followed it up with further thoughts and ideas on how the WMTG can evolve going forward.

What Our Clients Say

Fraud Investigation Service – Tax Investigation “We spent many sleepless nights worrying about letters from HMRC demanding this and that, we felt under the cosh, Housman were able to quickly access the situation and gave us, common sense advice and handled all communications with HMRC and eventually negotiated a fair settlement.”

D.S – Manchester

Security Company with VAT Assurance and Due Diligence issues “HMRC were asking loads of questions and demanding documents, Housman stepped in and managed the process. It took a load of my mind and sorted the VAT issue”

H.S - Birmingham

Landlord – Voluntary Disclosure under the Let Property Campaign “I foolishly let things slide and did not report my property income for serval years, I then approached Housman who handled all aspects of my Voluntary Disclosure. In the end it actually saved me tax because they claimed allowable expenses against the rental income.”

M.S.G - London

Accounts Preparation and Filing “Searching for an accountant for a small start-up felt like a chore, Housman offered me honest and useful advice from the start and is worth contacting them for advice on your problems”
