David Allen Group has welcomed Michael Fearon to its Workington team.

Mr Fearon, of Workington, has over six years’ practical experience and qualified as a chartered accountant last August.

Alongside looking after client accounts, a large part of Mr Fearon’s role will be to assist the business and clients with Making Tax Digital.

Mr Fearon said: “I’m really looking forward to a new challenge and the scope for progression that comes with a growing business.

"I am also looking forward to working in a business that has multiple service areas.”

Stuart Davison, operations manager said: “As part of our people strategy for 2019 we are delighted that Michael has joined our Workington team.

“He will be a great addition to the growing team and his software knowledge will be invaluable as we approach the Making Tax Digital deadline in April.”

Outside of work, Mr Fearon, pictured left, with Mr Davison, plays for Kirby Lonsdale Rugby Union Club’s first team.
