Neil Galjaard

Markel Tax, a UK tax services provider, is moving to new, larger office space in Sheffield.

The move will see the Fortune 500 company increase its investment and presence in the city which is home to its growing research & development (R&D) team.

The team helps UK companies investing in the development of new products, processes or services, or enhancing existing ones, to claim R&D tax relief.

It has moved to Ecclesall Road, with its new offices carefully selected to accommodate the team’s expansion.

Divisional managing director UK, Neil Galjaard, said: “Markel remains committed to Sheffield and growing our incentives and reliefs side of the business, demonstrated in our investments in both the office and our people.

“With our clients increasing, an incredibly strong H1 behind us and HMRC’s clamp down on rogue R&D claims gathering pace, Markel Tax’s reputation for quality is enabling the business to grow exponentially.

“Sheffield has a deep pool of talent and we’re already embarking on a recruitment process to fill vacancies at all levels as we look to grow the team.”

Markel will be hosting a launch party on 26 May with its senior leadership team, VIPs and the Mayor of Sheffield to celebrate its increased commitment to the area.
