Managing Director Anthony Hurley has amassed a wealth of experience in the consultancy profession, having worked for a Big 4 professional services firm for over 15 years.
After training as a Chartered Tax Advisor and providing tax services to large corporates and multinationals, Anthony began to specialise in the area of outsourcing, in particular, the setting up of an offshore corporate tax compliance centre for the provision of UK corporate tax services. Following a successful initial secondment to oversee the first compliance cycle, Anthony was invited back for a longer secondment as UK Corporate Tax Team Leader for the offshore corporate tax team, based in Bangalore, India. He assumed responsibility for operations, quality control and process developments for the corporate tax compliance services delivered by approximately 100 team members to 14 onshore locations. During his tenure, over 100,000 hours of work were delivered and the satisfaction and quality surveys issued for each large project resulted in 95% satisfied and a staff retention rate of over 80%, both of which are above industry average.
Since returning to the UK, Anthony has continued to work with and develop offshore teams, specialising in the provision of knowledge management, analytics and business transformation.
To be successful, Anthony has had to develop a deep understanding of working effectively in a remote office, building strong relationships through innovative and agile methods, embracing technology and processes to ensure efficiency gains and both team and customer satisfaction. Constantly looking for better ways to do things, to deliver savings to the business and better customer service, Anthony now wants to help the SME market through these unprecedented times.
