Shorts announces Radius promotions and team expansion

21st April 2022

Shorts is pleased to announce the promotion of two key members of its Radius team, which advises on R&D and Patent Box tax reliefs.

Darryl Hoy has been promoted to the position of Technical Director within the Radius team, while Emily Hurdley has been promoted to manager.

Furthermore, the Radius team continues to grow with the announcement that Matthew Pierce has joined the firm, also as Manager. Matthew’s appointment will augment the team’s continued growth and client service.

This news caps off a successful year for the Radius team, despite a challenging business climate throughout the UK and across the world. HMRC investigations into R&D tax relief claims are due to increase as the treasury seeks to bolster tax revenues. As such, it’s vital to offer expert advice to claimant companies.

Scott Burkinshaw, Tax Partner at Shorts and Head of Radius, said:

“Radius is committed to making sure that the region's innovative companies are able to claim their full entitlement to government backed R&D tax reliefs. The talent and expertise of our team is central to this, and the performance and contributions of Darryl and Emily have been consistently excellent. They will continue to play a critical role in delivering and improving the Radius service. I also am delighted to welcome Matthew to Radius; his knowledge and experience will further solidify Radius as the leading R&D specialist in the region.”
