Steve Chamberlain has joined MHA Monahans as senior VAT manager, bringing with him 30 years of VAT expertise and wide first-hand experience of VAT across numerous sectors and businesses.
Steve was previously VAT director at RSM UK and has also spent ten years as a VAT inspector for HMRC.
The firm hopes the appointment will bolster the its VAT advisory service and MHA Monahans’ clients across the region will be able to access this specialist knowledge and be confident in the knowledge that their VAT requirements are safely in hand.
Steve explained: “VAT can be a difficult area for businesses as it’s complex, not intuitive and can bring painful consequences. However with the right advice, it is possible to have a solution that works, doesn’t cost a fortune and that people can understand.
“I provide robust, practical and commercial advice in a down-to-earth and plain speaking manner. Thanks to my experience, I offer sound advice on what to do when things go wrong, what risks there are, together with what opportunities work and what’s happening in the marketplace.
“I am enjoying being part of the MHA Monahans team, with the friendliness and collegiate approach that this firm has. I will be working alongside colleagues to provide early, sound advice that considers VAT issues early on.”
Simon Tombs, managing partner, added: “Steve’s appointment is a strategic development for MHA Monahans which will enable us to continue the rate of growth and rising position in the market that we have experienced over the past few years.
"By bringing in Steve to work with our clients across our offices, we can maintain and build the excellent level of service that our clients expect from us as standard, whilst adding more to how we support and advise our clients.”
