BTA Services join the Sedulo Group ahead of Birmingham launch

We’re extremely excited to announce our intention to expand into Birmingham with the acquisition of R&D tax advisory firm, BTA Services.

BTA Services are an R&D tax credit specialist firm in the Midlands area who have completed over 1,100 R&D claims with in excess of £10m of revenue across almost 400 clients. They were founded in 2018 by Eric McClenaghan who will stay on as an advisor to the business.

They have joined the Sedulo family, which currently sits at number 70 in the Accountancy Top 100 mid-tier ranking list, with 200 advisors operating out of Manchester, London, Leeds and Liverpool. With record annual results of almost £15m revenue also announced, new city centre regions are seen as the core of a strategy to DOUBLE in size over the next three years.

With the acquisition of BTA Services providing the base from which to build, more key hires in Financial Planning and Banking are set to be announced imminently. The search has also begun for a permanent home in the centre of Birmingham, featuring a leisure space/ bar, a gymnasium and themed meeting rooms in line with the ethos of our other city centre locations, once voted one the best offices in the UK.

“We are delighted that BTA have become part of the Sedulo family, where all of our staff have fantastic career opportunities and can positively contribute to the breadth and depth of the R&D team at Sedulo.

“BTA clients will continue to be looked after by our familiar team and will now have a range of additional services available to them.”

Eric McClenaghan | Founder of BTA Services

“We have been looking for an acquisition for a while that allows us to enter a new territory. BTA Services gives us a perfect foothold into the Birmingham area, and we are already on a recruitment mission to add to the existing members.

“Over the past two years, we have substantially increased the sophistication of our R&D offering, with the recruitment of Josh Perry and Andy Nixon from top six firms leading the team. The landscape has become more difficult to navigate, but we have developed our offering. As a result, we are in a perfect position to acquire strong firms like BTA Services and add some additional expertise.

“We look forward to the next 12 months, which should see us edge towards £20m in revenue.”

Paul Cheetham-Karcz | Founder of Sedulo Group
