About ForrestBrown Limited

ForrestBrown are a firm of chartered tax advisors that use research and development (R&D) tax credits to help innovative businesses grow.

They are one of the largest teams of chartered tax advisers specialising in research and development (R&D) tax credits in the UK and advise around 100 companies every month. In 2017 alone, they recovered more than £75 million for clients.

The company is led by Founder and Managing Director Simon Brown. Investing in staff is said to be Simon's top priority. He is very clear with candidates that moving to ForrestBrown is a career move and that there is no glass ceiling at the company. From that point on, he gives his employees the space, time and support to seize opportunities for personal growth.

ForrestBrown aims to achieve a turnover of £50 million, over 100 staff and offices in five locations by 2020.
