Claritas unveiled as contenders in this year's North West Insider DealMakers Awards

Acknowledging their commitment to the deal-making community and on the back of being shortlisted for this year’s “Specialist Services Team of the Year” at the Midlands Insider DealMakers Awards, Claritas Tax are delighted to announce that they have also been shortlisted for the North West Insider DealMakers “Transactions Services Team of the year”.

Claritas are currently on a roll, having been shortlisted for the following upcoming 2023 awards:

  • Step Awards: Best Private Client Team
  • Midlands Business of the Year Award
  • Greater Birmingham Young Professional of the Year Awards 2023, with not one but three of their team members having been shortlisted.


They have also recently been recognised within the top 100 in this year’s Sunday Times Best Place to Work and placed within the top 50 most Inspiring Workplaces EMEA. Both of which demonstrate the firm's commitment to being a great and engaging place for employees to shape, develop, and grow their careers.

The firm has grown to become one of the UK’s leading tax advisory firms, with offices in Manchester, Birmingham, and Nottingham. The award shortlisting comes as an excellent recognition of all the hard work the firm’s team has put in over the past year.

Matt Hodgson, Partner and Head of Claritas’ Manchester office commented: Having attended almost every NW Insider Dealmakers Awards for the last twenty-odd years, it seems quite a unique achievement for a tax advisory business to be nominated in this category. Tax structuring, due diligence and other tax aspects of transactions, whether buy or sell-side, is playing an increasingly important role on deals and due to the depth of quality practitioners in our business, we’ve established ourselves as a genuine alternative to some of the larger accountancy firms. The Manchester Claritas team is thriving and long may that continue.”

Ses Memhi, Associate Partner and Head of Transaction Tax at Claritas adds: “I would just like to express my gratitude to the whole of the Claritas team. This is a testament to their hard work and commitment to have been recognised on another national level, against such strong competition.”

We have everything crossed for when the winners will be announced in October and wish all those who have been shortlisted the best of luck.
