Albert Goodman announces double hire in tax team

Regional chartered accountancy firm Albert Goodman has appointed two new managers within their tax team, Lauren Chadwick and Julie Harding, just weeks after a new director in the growing team was announced, Ruth Powell.

Lauren (pictured right) started working in tax in 2012 and is now a Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) and a member of the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT). Lauren began her career following completion of her A-Levels and spent 10 years training and working at a larger firm before joining Albert Goodman.

Julie’s (pictured left) career began in Jersey where she enjoyed a private banking role from 2012 before her interest grew in tax in 2017 and she gained the experience of being part of a large corporate company for just over five years. During this time, she became a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

Both Lauren and Julie are a member of the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP) and share similar expertise in tax compliance, advice and accounts for family trusts, individuals and estates. The duo enjoy working with families to assist with their tax compliance obligations. Both will be based at the firm’s Bristol office.

Lauren said: “I am excited to join a growing company where I can bring my expertise in trusts and inheritance tax to both the tax team and the firm’s clients. Having joined from a much larger firm I am looking forward to the opportunity a smaller firm provides especially around getting to know and assisting my colleagues from across all areas of the business.”

Julie added: “Joining Albert Goodman means that I get to be part of a company that prides itself on staff engagement and being a great employer to work for. Bringing my previous experience to the rapidly expanding tax team feels like the right step and time to further my career in an established accountancy practice, especially as we near the end of the financial tax year.”
