Mark Kearsley has been promoted to Tax Director at DSG Chartered Accountants, following 11 years at the firm as a chartered accountant and chartered tax advisor.

Mark’s new role will have a focus on business development and advisory work for SMEs to large corporate firms across the Liverpool city region. As well as assisting in leading the tax team of 13 people, he will oversee claims for creative industry tax reliefs and approval of seed/enterprise investment schemes.

Mark will work closely with the Head of Tax, Mike Stott, and the DSG partners (Iain White, Jean Ellis, Tony Bayliss and Andrew Moss) in supporting the growth of the business, as well as serving the varied portfolio of clients across Liverpool and North Wales.

This promotion follows Mark’s recent appointment as Chairman for the Merseyside branch of the Chartered Institute of Taxation and Association of Taxation Technicians (CIOT / ATT).

Mark said: “I’m incredibly proud to have been promoted as Tax Director at DSG, having started 11 years ago as a trainee, and hope that through working with the partners I can really support the firm’s growth in the future. I look forward to leading the talented tax team and with this, supporting businesses across the region.”

Mike Stott, head of tax at DSG, said: “We are thrilled to announce Mark’s promotion, which highlights his commitment to DSG since 2008 and his achievements. Our internal promotions show the desire to strengthen our team which in turn will strengthen our position as one of the leading independent accountancy firms in the North West.”
