I joined Pierce back in 2006 becoming a fully qualified Chartered Accountant in 2011.
Working principally with Mark Maden-Wilkinson managing a number of clients as well as having a sub-portfolio of my own, I have now developed my role and have become an Associate Director in November 2015.
In addition to my specialist knowledge of Research and Development tax claims. I work in all areas of general practice from compliance work such as audit and accounts to more ad hoc project work such as business plans, re-organisations and MBO's.
Qualifications and professional achievements:
How did you end up working for an accountancy practice?
My Dad made me, but it has since grown on me!
I did a skydive in Australia last year – never again!
From David Baxendale at Promedics Orthapaedic Limited
‘’Promedics would highly recommend Tom Wilkinson. He has been an integral part of our business for a number of years, and Tom consistently adds value and commercial acumen to our company. He is a valuable sounding board to our Directors on commercial matters, and his straight talking, business first approach is hard to find in a finance professional.’’
From Richard Mottram at Hills Panel Products Limited
‘‘Having been a client of Pierce for many years, Hills Panel Products Limited value immensely the input to the growth of our business over time from our annual financial audit, accounts preparation and professional advice given year on year. This has been and is achieved under the direct management of Tom Wilkinson. Last year we had the confidence to engage Tom to produce our very thorough and successful Research and Development HMRC corporation tax relief claim. We confidently look forward to maintaining and developing our current relationship to the benefit of both our businesses’’
From Sean Egan at DES Electrical Contractors UK.
’Tom has provided DES Electrical with outstanding advice over the past few years, particularly in relation to some areas of crucial importance to our business, both in terms of our medium and long-term strategic planning. He has made a significant contribution to the growth of our business – quite simply we would not have achieved our results without his guidance.
A large part of any working relationship comes down to personalities and we've always found Tom to be friendly and approachable and we trust him to do the best for our business.
I could not recommend Tom more highly. We have found his services to be professional, efficient, prompt and friendly and look forward to working together for many more years to come.’’
