Grant Thornton appoints tax partner to support M&A market

Business and financial advisory firm Grant Thornton UK has promoted Martin Verrall to transaction tax partner in its South region.

Verrall has a wealth of experience at Grant Thornton, joining as a graduate 15 years ago and spending the last decade working in transactions. In recent years, his key responsibilities have been focussed on leading sell side transaction tax.
Based in the firm’s Gatwick office, Verrall will lead a team of ten located across the South of the UK, with input from other VAT and employment specialists.
In this position, Verall will continue to provide specialist expertise and advice to business owners when selling their companies. He will also play an important national support role at Grant Thornton by supporting the growth of the sell side transaction tax practice.
Verall’s appointment in July comes at a vibrant time in the South’s economy, as the M&A market continues to thrive following a bumper year for deals activity.
Outside of London, the South typically has the largest number of transactions by volume and value. This is a continuing trend and Verbal will help to support and expand the team moving forwards in order to meet a growing appetite to invest in the region.
