The firm was established in 1975, originally as Frank Hirth & Co - a firm of Chartered Accountants, and offered general accounting and tax services with a particular emphasis on US and UK tax compliance. It quickly became apparent that they were building an in-depth technical knowledge of the interaction between the US and UK tax jurisdictions and they used that knowledge to advise their clients through their complex tax issues.
Guided by a passion for building lasting relationships with their clients based on trust, understanding and technical excellence, the firm has flourished over the past 40 years. Their practice of putting clients at the heart of everything they do will always be one of their core values.
Frank Hirth PLC is currently listed as the 32nd largest Accountancy firm in the UK (2017 Accountancy Age Top 50 50 survey of the UK’s biggest accountancy firms) with a workforce of 220 dedicated people. They are a diverse community made up of people with a broad depth of technical knowledge, 45% of whom have been with them for five years or more. We have built an excellent working environment which provides professional development and opportunity. As testament to that, the very first employee of the firm is now their Chairman. In addition, a member of their first Entry Level Tax Assistants Scheme was recently appointed to their Board of Directors.
