Simon Celebrates Partnership

Dodd & Co are delighted to announce that with effect from 1 January 2019 Simon Kirkbride will join the Dodd & Co partnership.

Simon joined Dodds as a school leaver back in 2002 and completed his ATT and CTA qualifications, becoming a tax manager in 2014.

Simon will be the firm’s 2nd tax partner and specialises in both personal and corporation tax. Many of our GP clients will already know Simon as he has been a member of our healthcare team, specialising in taxation, for a number of years now.

Simon has an interest and expertise in software technology, and works on incorporating the newest ideas and features into Dodd & Co’s systems which  in turn helps our clients to monitor their businesses more effectively and ensures that we’ll all be extremely well prepared and ready to deal with any new legislation, such as MTD (Making Tax Digital).

Simon, originally from Wigton, but now living in Lazonby with his young family says “I went to school in Wigton and joined Dodds after my A levels so becoming a partner really is an ambition fulfilled for me. Dodds has a fantastic reputation for training and I am proof as to how your career can progress with the correct guidance and support – with the right firm behind you. 70% of our Partners and Managers across the firm have worked for us for more than 10 years and we’ve created 50 new positions in a decade, increasing the size of our team by 40%.  We have a really solid team here at Penrith with some great talent; we have experts in numerous specialisms including business start ups, farming, healthcare, tourism and general practice.  Our clients tell us they want knowledge, communication and personality from their accountant – something we have bags of at Dodds and I’m really pleased to be part of this successful business and great Cumbrian employer”.
