"We understand our clients'
needs and offer practical solutions"


Mercer & Hole was formed in 1905 and throughout its history manufacturing has been at the heart of its client base.  This long association has allowed us to develop a deep understanding of the sector and we regularly help clients with a range of services, from maximising capital allowances on capital expenditure and  making R&D tax credit claims through to due diligence support for acquisitions.

As the manufacturing base in the UK has reduced over more recent years, so has the availability of highly skilled engineers and many of our clients find recruiting and retaining staff a key challenge.  Again, we can work with you to develop incentive plans, for example share option schemes.

For many manufacturers of all sizes, importing raw materials and exporting finished goods is commonplace and our international networks (TIAG and TAGLaw) enable us to obtain local tax, accounting and legal advice for clients working in overseas markets.

Our range of services for manufacturing clients includes:

  • Tax planning, including capital allowance maximisation
  • R&D tax credits
  • Remuneration planning, including share options and pension schemes
  • Financing/fund raising assistance
  • VAT advice and solutions
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Tax compliance and planning
  • Accounting and payroll services
  • Statutory audit
  • Restructuring
  • Personal tax planning for owners

If you would like assistance or a fee quote for services please contact Sandy Bell,  Andrew Lawes, or Phil Fenn.
