Manufacturing & Engineering

As one of the world’s leading manufacturing nations, it is a sector that is vital to the country’s prosperity. We believe our passion for this dynamic sector combined with our extensive knowledge and specialist services makes us different.

A partner for manufacturing businesses

At MHA MacIntyre Hudson, we understand that manufacturing and engineering businesses face a fast moving domestic and global landscape, with the challenges of sector disruption, economic uncertainty as well as cost pressures, labour issues and regulation. That’s what makes our team of specialists different. As accountants and advisers, we specialise in the sector  and work in partnership with our clients to help plot a path to success, whatever your aspirations are.

Accounting for manufacturing - a centre of excellence

Our team of manufacturing accountants and auditors not only have an in-depth knowledge of the sector, but we are a centre of excellence for advising businesses across manufacturing and engineering. We take a proactive approach with all our clients, from start-ups needing guidance from our manufacturing advisors through to developing growth strategies for multi-national organisations.

National and international expertise

Our experience of working with a range of national and international clients means we have built up a vast knowledge of different markets and regulatory environments. We can advise on a variety of industry-related areas, from core services, such as accounting for manufacturing operations,  audits , to more specialist areas including R&D tax relief, capital reliefs, VAT and duties and  expanding into new international  markets.

Our membership of Baker Tilly International underpins this reach. With manufacturing advisors in more than 130 countries, we can provide your organisation with joined-up advice and thinking wherever you need to do business.

Strong sector links

We are immersed in the sector through events, seminars and forums. We are proud to facilitate these meetings, which are essential for sharing best practice and networking. We also author the influential MHA Manufacturing & Engineering Survey, now in its 7th year, which has become the go-to report for understanding the current state of play in the sector.

We have also forged close links with the sector’s several associations such as the Manufacturing Advisory Service, UK Trade & Investment, Institute of Mechanical Engineers and Cranfield Centre of Innovative Manufacturing, as well as LEPs and banks. These relationships have helped us to develop an exhaustive knowledge of available funding, grants and training opportunities.

Working as partners

We are trusted partners to our clients, who range from SMEs through to major international companies, and believe it is our team approach to problem-solving that helps us to foster strong relationships.

We like to take a proactive approach with clients offering strategic advice based on our leading-edge knowledge of the industry, and the latest developments in regulation and legislation.

Our team offers core services, such as accounting for manufacturing businesses, and advice on manufacturing tax, but our team of specialist manufacturing accountants can support:

  • Tax planning and corporate restructuring
  • Understanding and claiming R&D tax credits
  • Understanding and profiting from the Patent Box scheme
  • Helping find routes to finance through our extensive network of bankers, invoice financiers, and grant-makers
