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.
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.
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.
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.
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 8th 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.
