A BALLYCLARE-based tax consultancy firm is to open a Scottish office as part of major expansion plans.
Research and development (R&D) tax specialists, Amplifi Solutions is to open a new Edinburgh office in September as it looks to open up its services to more potential clients.
The firm has also added to its senior team through the appointment of Jamie Watts from iMultiply as commercial director and Andrew Smythe, previously of Northern Ireland Chamber, as client manager.
Amplifi Solutions managing partner, Jeff Drennan said it is an “very exciting” period of growth for the company and its clients across the UK and Ireland.
“We are very pleased to welcome both Jamie and Andrew to their new roles, who bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience that will benefit our clients to no end,” he said.
Jamie Watts, commercial director at Amplifi Solutions added:
“Northern Ireland is rife with innovative companies and we see investment into research and development across a range of industries and professions. A new office in Scotland will allow us to deliver our existing levels of customer service to an even wider audience. Our message is simple – if you are a company that is innovating, then talk to us.”
Amplifi Solutions, whose team includes management and chartered accountants, advised hundreds of companies in the last year alone in relation to R&D tax credits.
R&D tax credits can be awarded to any company proving they are undertaking steps in research or development – even when those projects don’t succeed.
