Claritas Tax, the independent tax advisory firm with offices in Birmingham and Manchester ended 2022 in an outstanding position within their M&A service line and the firm as a whole.

Claritas’ Transactions Tax team advised on 56 deals with a total value of more than £2.34bn throughout 2022, and with a healthy pipeline of new deals for 2023 the team are raring to go, working with new and old clients.

Against a background of another tough year due to the energy crisis, the Ukraine war and the race to number 10 Downing Street and its associated effects, Claritas have had a record year, proving why they continue to be the go-to leading tax advisory firm, placing both their clients and colleagues at the heart of what they do.

Record deal values were achieved in a year in which Claritas has also grown its turnover by 45% and increased staff numbers by 10 to end the year with 45 staff across its offices in Manchester and Birmingham. Not to forget, the team also collected two awards at the Insider Midlands Dealmakers: the International deal of the year for their role on the acquisition of Solid Solutions Group by Trimech and the prestigious title of Specialist Transaction Services Team of the Year!

Claritas have advised across various sectors, with notable (disclosable) transactions being:

  • Arete Capital Partners’ investment in Fireplace Warehouse
  • Sale of Lyneal Group to an Employee Ownership Trust
  • Investment by Volpi Capital in Xalient Technologies
  • The MBO of Atech.Cloud by Pelican Capital
  • Exit of Talos 360 to LDC
  • Sale of YourParkingSpace by Pelican Capital to Flowbird
  • NVM-backed MBO of Inprova Group
  • Sale of Frontier Development Capital to Mercia Asset Management
  • Mobeus Private Equity’s investment in The Translation People

Ses Memhi, Associate Partner and Head of Transaction Tax at Claritas, said: Our strong growth this year is down to the resilience of entrepreneurial businesses, combined with the hard work and determination of our people. We have hugely ambitious plans to continue growing, enabling success and ensuring that we drive better outcomes and service for our clients.”

Matt Hodgson for Manchester / Iain Wright for Birmingham, Partner, adds: 2022 has been a remarkable year for us, and we look forward to what 2023 brings. Our M&A service line is supported by a cross-service line team of specialists, in all areas of tax, meaning we’re always able to pull together a bespoke project team to meet the requirements of any particular deal.”
