PUBLISHED: 11:43 17 September 2018
A leading regional firm of chartered accountants has brought together a new specialist team to support East Anglia's energy sector.
Lovewell Blake’s new energy team consists of dedicated tax consultants specialising in diverse advisory areas such as R&D claims, VAT and customs matters, overseas employment and international payroll services.
Lovewell Blake partner James Shipp, who heads the firm’s specialist Energy Team, said: “Lovewell Blake have provided market leading compliance and advisory services to our local clients for over 150 years but this new specialism draws on the expertise of our dedicated team of tax consultants to deliver on the bespoke demand of local businesses in the energy supply chain. Over the years, as the energy sector has changed and grown to embrace alternative technologies, we have developed our understanding and knowledge, and given its unique accountancy needs, we felt that the time was right to bring together all of the individuals with expertise and experience of the energy sector into a dedicated team.
“The local sector is so diverse, encompassing offshore wind, oil and gas, decommissioning and nuclear projects. The advice and support businesses in these supply chains need is equally diverse and prompted our decision to bring together our specialisms into one team.
“With offices in Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, in the heart of the energy sector’s core areas of operation, as well as an extended presence across the region, we are in a strong position to offer specialist advice and support to what is an important part of East Anglia’s economy.”
