Accountancy firm Clayton & Brewill has strengthened its team with the addition of four new accountants in Nottingham.

The four new recruits join the Clayton & Brewill’s Nottingham city centre offices on Canal Street.

Chartered accountant Garry Underwood joins from Pells Chartered Accountants and brings over nine years’ experience in advising small and medium sized businesses.

Emma Hunt specialises in smaller and micro businesses and, in addition to over a decade of accounts and bookkeeping experience, has run her own business.

Hayley Purdy joins the firm’s C&B Comply team, working with team head Catherine Sharp to provide advice to both businesses and individuals. Her previous experience includes national accountancy practice BDO.

Completing the quartet of new recruits is trainee accountant Daniel Lawson. Lawson joins from Pells Chartered Accountants and has also spent several years in the finance team at New College Nottingham.

Neil South, partner at Clayton & Brewill, said: “2015 has been a busy year and we have an excellent pipeline for 2016. Our growth has come largely from our existing farming and private business client base, assisted by our reputation for handling pension auto-enrolment work.

“Additionally there has been a growing trend of self-employment, which began during the recession, and has led to a surge in demand for personal tax and accountancy advice. We are delighted to have attracted four high calibre individuals to help meet this demand over the next 12 months.”
