A member of the Baker Tilly International accountancy and business advisory network, the company employs more than 900 people across 10 UK offices.
This includes more than 50 people based at its Leicester branch in Meridian Business Park, which works particularly closely with industries such as manufacturing, technology and healthcare on issues such as R&D tax credits.
As well as its patronage, MHA MacIntyre Hudson becomes the latest partner of Generation Next, the Chamber’s network for young professionals and future business leaders in the East Midlands.
Partner Neil Berry, based in Leicester, said: “East Midlands Chamber works actively in our region to support the wide range of growing businesses and entrepreneurs, representing members and the wider business community on local, regional, national and international issues.
“MHA MacIntyre Hudson echoes this throughout its own organisation. We recognise the value this brings in truly connecting with our clients and influencing their business growth.
“We became a patron of the Chamber to increase the contribution we are able to make to other Chamber members and the East Midlands business community by providing greater access to our business services.”
MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s origins date back to 1880, when the firm became a founding member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, which now supports more than 147,000 members.
Today, the company works in partnership with clients ranging from solo entrepreneurs to multinational corporations. It offers one-to-one expertise in accountancy and business advisory services including audit and taxation compliance, tax planning, corporate finance and wealth management.
The pandemic has created new opportunities for it to work with clients virtually, which the firm says has enabled it to devote care and attention to their needs while saving time and resources.
Neil added: “Our primary concern is our clients’ satisfaction. To achieve this, our culture is one of listening and responding to their needs, and seeking to exceed expectations. Looking after their interests involves combining our knowledge of your business with our professional skills and abilities.”
MHA MacIntyre Hudson has also supported its employees over the past couple of years while working from home by deploying a team of mental health first aiders, who aim to spot the signs of mental ill-health.
Staff are offered free counselling and virtual GP services via an app. All new employees to the firm can take part in a unique tree-planting programme that acts as a symbol of growth for their wellbeing and development.
East Midlands Chamber chief executive Scott Knowles said: “Bringing on board a firm with the heritage and stature of MHA MacIntyre Hudson as a patron is a fantastic coup for the Chamber. “We believe members of both the Chamber and our Generation Next network, which continues to go from strength to strength, will greatly benefit from the accountancy and business advisory expertise it has to offer.”
