TaxScouts going big

TaxScouts have appointed Mal Cowley as its new CEO, with the aim of building its tax management and accounting platform into the largest network of certified accountants in Europe.

Cowley’s appointment comes as TaxScouts reports a 350% increase in growth. It has also tripled its customers in two years. The Fintech platform now has a network of 150 accredited accountants, after a successful launch in Spain in 2021, a country it says has a notoriously complicated tax system.

Cowley said: “In the new realities of work, the self-employed are playing an increasingly pivotal role in providing stability and flexibility to all industries. As a result, there’s a growing demand for trusted tax advice and support that’s easy to access.

“On the accountants side, TaxScouts’ ease of onboarding new clients and managing workflows has already contributed to the retention of high-quality accountants in the workforce – yet another industry that has been hit by the global talent shortages. It’s a strong foundation to build the largest European network of accredited accountants and I’m happy to have joined the team at this pivotal time in the company’s trajectory.”
