Small Business of the Year/Team of the Year entrant – Premier Tax Solutions Ltd
Premier Tax Solutions has enjoyed year on year growth since it was founded by Emily Precious and Vanessa Fuller when they were both aged just 26.
The Stoke-on-Trent company has a team of nine staff and a specialism in the niche areas of hair, beauty and construction – which make up around 70% of all its clients.
The company has developed a talent for recruiting new hair and beauty clients through Instagram and has launched its own YouTube and Instagram channels to tap into this growing market.
Vanessa, who is Staffordshire University Business and Legal Studies alumni, heads up the personal tax team and also focuses heavily on business development.
Emily is a specialist tax adviser for larger businesses and took on a major HMRC enquiry reducing the tax interest and penalties against a client by £30,000. Emily’s highly specialised work also includes Research and Development claims and embedded Capital Allowance claims. Emily advised on the sale of a business worth £6 million, saving the business £100,000 in Capital Gains tax.
There is a strong focus on team spirit including a social fund for days out where employees’ family members are welcome too.
“The team are heavily invested in each other with a huge amount of respect and camaraderie which helps the team to achieve the best results by supporting each other,” said Vanessa.
“They want to produce the best results possible not only for their clients but to help and support each other too.”
Staff and their immediate family are offered private health insurance and there are opportunities to attend external training courses.
Premier Tax Solutions has entered the Team of the Year and Small Business of the Year categories of the Staffordshire University Business Awards.
