Property tax specialists E³ Consulting generated savings of £60m for clients during a record trading year.

The independent family owned firm celebrated the achievements with an informal drinks reception at car dealer Ocean Automotive’s flagship Poole Audi showroom.

Managing director Alun Oliver, who co-founded the business with wife Nicky in 2003, said: “We’re thrilled to say that 2018-2019 was our best trading year to date.

“We analysed more than £570m of expenditure and identified over £230m of qualifying expenditure, achieving tax-savings of approximately £60m for our clients.

He added: “Despite Brexit dragging on, this year is currently ahead of the last and we are on target for 20 per cent year on year growth.”

Clients, contacts, suppliers and staff were among the guests at the Autumn drinks reception at Poole Audi, one of E3’s longstanding clients.

A total of £420 was raised from a charity raffle in aid of the Priest’s House Museum, Garden and Café in Wimborne, which is undergoing a major refurbishment.

Nicky Oliver, who is a Priest’s House trustee, said: “Our company ethos has always been based on nurturing long-term relationships.

“Our informal drinks night at Poole Audi reflected our values of collaboration, honesty, high quality service, support and transparency.

“Our thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate a superb year, and raised such a great amount for the Priest’s House at a vibrant and convivial evening.”

Nicky, Alun and Priest’s House director Emma Ayling all gave short speeches during the event.
