Pierce Chartered Accountants has appointed five new employees to its growing team following a recruitment drive.

The Blackburn-based firm has welcomed accounts trainee John Farnworth and Sarah Farragher and Georgina Dewhurst to its online services team. Karen Rhodes joins as payroll administrator and Stephen Evans on a one-year accounts placement.

The appointments further strengthen the online services team which has grown significantly since the introduction of Making Tax Digital in April 2019. Since the new process was announced, the team has increased by 33% per cent.
