Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO LLP has strengthened its Midlands team with the appointment of a new partner.
Having previously worked at BDO between 2011 to 2018, Steve Round re-joins the firm as a tax partner in the East Midlands. He specialises in transaction tax and advising owner-managed businesses, their shareholders & private equity-backed businesses on tax issues arising during all stages of a business’s lifecycle.
At BDO, he will manage a portfolio of clients across a breadth of sectors, including technology, professional services, manufacturing, business services and real estate. He will also focus on transaction work, advising on corporate structuring, shareholder exits, business acquisitions, tax due diligence, succession and the creation of Employee Ownership Trusts (EOTs).
Kyla Bellingall, regional managing partner at BDO in the Midlands, said: “We’re delighted to welcome back Steve to our rapidly expanding East Midlands team.
“In the last 12 months, we have invested significantly in the region, cementing our position in the market with our long-term move to Nottingham city centre, while also attracting talented and high-performing individuals to strengthen our proposition.
“Steve will add considerable value as we continue to grow our tax and corporate finance teams in the East Midlands.”
Steve will be based in the firm’s Nottingham office and joins from Cooper Parry.
He said: “It’s fantastic to be back at BDO during a period of exciting growth in the region. I’m really looking forward to getting back out in the East Midlands market to reignite strong relationships with the private equity and advisor community, as well as owner-managed businesses that are the lifeblood of the region.
“I can’t wait to get stuck in and build close bonds across our local, national and international teams – a network that brings considerable value to our service offering.”
