Technology

The phenomenal growth of the tech sector is like nothing we have seen before. We passionately believe clients in this innovative sector need specialist partners that can match their vision, expertise and agility.

Technology accountants and advisers

As long-term partners to the UK tech sector, we understand that the growth of a tech business does not always follow the usual rules.

Our experienced team of specialist accountants for tech and digital companies understand that each tech firm is different, both in terms of needs and ambition.

Outperforming the economy

As a significant draw for investment, both domestic and international, and a significant contributor to new job creation, the UK tech sector is outperforming the rest of the economy. It is also making its impact felt across the UK as, while London is a significant hub, clusters of tech firms are popping up all over the country.

MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s team of technology accountants and advisers have a deep understanding of this varied and robust sector. Innovation, adaptability and business confidence have been key to its growth to date.

Our accountants and advisers for technology and digital businesses understand good advice is essential for companies navigating this sector’s fluctuating demands, particularly in a post-Brexit world.

Understanding today, for tomorrow

Our experience of working with tech and digital businesses has given us a unique insight into the challenges they face today. Meanwhile, our close links with sector organisations TechUK and the Cloud Industry Forum help us to anticipate the future issues that might impact on our clients.
