MacIntyre Hudson closes Powrie Appleby

13 job losses as practice acquired by MHA MacIntyre Hudson is closed

MHA MACINTYRE HUDSON has closed its Leicester-based provider of tax services Powrie Appleby.

The firms merged in April this year, with 15 staff joining MacIntyre Hudson’s Leicester practice, while maintaining the Powrie Appleby brand. The liquidation process, overseen by Wilkins Kennedy, will see 13 job losses. MacIntyre’s Leicester office remains open.

Steve Moore, regional chairman, said: “Due to the government’s tougher position on tax, we have taken the difficult commercial decision to close this business, with the unfortunate consequence of the loss of 13 jobs through redundancy.

“The Leicester office has been recently strengthened through the arrivals of Mike Ball and Mukesh Bulsara and continues to provide a broad range of accounting, tax and corporate finance advice to both private and commercial clients in Leicestershire and across the UK.”

The closure is a blow to MacIntyre Hudson, which has received good press reports in recent months. A year ago it launched its MHA network of firms and new branding. The firm changed its name to MHA MacIntyre Hudson this month.
