Reading: Rapid growth brings Silver to BDO’s rewards team

Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO LLP in Reading has appointed Amy Silver to its fast-growing reward team.

Part of the 180-strong team based, BDO’s reward department is the largest in the Thames Valley that focuses specifically on reward and employee incentivisation.

It now has six people dedicated to providing reward-based advice to clients, from just two 12 months ago.  Headed by director David Gardner, the team is targeting £1 million revenues this year.

Gardner commented: “As businesses in the Thames Valley set their sights on growth, attracting and retaining the very best talent is a key part of their expansion plans.

“Because of this, and in light of the introduction of the new Employee Shareholder Status (ESS) scheme, the need for quality tax and reward advice has burgeoned. We’ve continued to invest in our own team’s growth and expertise and we’re delighted to welcome Amy aboard.”

The BDO reward team has a mix of tax professionals and lawyers providing businesses with advice on all aspects of employee remuneration, share incentives and international share plans, as well as the tax implications for employers.
