PM+M grows tax team with new research and development specialist

Jon Connor and Jane Parry

Blackburn headquartered PM+M – the chartered accountancy, business advisory and wealth management group – has further strengthened its tax team with the appointment of Jon Connor who has joined as a research and development tax credits manager.

Jon’s new role will see him working with the firm’s broad range of clients to ensure they are both taking advantage of the available relief and maximising their claims.

Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credits is a UK tax incentive designed to encourage companies to invest in R&D. Companies can reduce their tax bill or claim payable cash credits as a proportion of their R&D expenditure.

Jon joins PM+M from R&D Tax Solutions. He has also worked at Cowgill Holloway and NIS Ltd.

Jane Parry, managing partner at PM+M, said: “The increasing complexity around R&D tax credits means Jon’s appointment is crucial to the development of our specialist service in this area. His knowledge and experience is already adding value to our clients and his advice will, I’m sure, form an integral part of their future growth and development plans.”

Jon added: “I’m really excited about joining PM+M. It is a fantastic firm with great opportunities and expansion plans. Having the remit to grow a service such as R&D tax relief is an exciting prospect.”
