WTP launches practice in UK with Hopkins deal

UK firm Hopkins Consulting has become part of US tax and advisory business
WTP Advisors.

The move gives what WTP believes is a foot in the door to compete for
international business. Existing clients with international operations tend to
engage the big Four for tax and accounting needs abroad.

“They do this for convenience, because the big four can provide global
coverage,” said Ian Boccaccio, co-founder and principal of WTP Advisors. ”
However, we hear that some clients are dissatisfied with the cost and quality of
the product they receive so we want to provide a WTP alternative to these
clients for their international needs, much in the way we market an attractive
alternative in the United States.”

Simon Hopkins, CEO and founder of Hopkins Consulting, said he was thrilled
the firm was part of WTP Advisors.

“WTP’s expansion reflects its rapid success in this space, and supports the
philosophy that people prefer a hands-on approach that emphasizes practical
advice based on technical detail,” said Hopkins.

Hopkins began the consultancy after working for more than a decade with Ernst
& Young.
