Josh joins Carbon with a strong background in Research and Development (R&D), having worked in the accounting and tax field for over 12 years, most recently at Deloitte.
After completing his Chartered Accountant qualification, Josh moved from EY to the mid-tier, to specialise in R&D tax, which immediately sparked his interest. Since then, he has continued to provide high-quality services to small to medium sized businesses seeking help with the R&D claim process.
Given the complexity of R&D claims and grants, it’s incredibly beneficial for businesses to work with an advisor they trust, and someone who genuinely cares about getting the best result possible. This is something Josh is passionate about.
“I find it incredibly rewarding to work with a business from the beginning of their R&D project, right through to completion. I’m not someone who likes to pop in and out, I enjoy the process of getting to know my clients, their business and their projects,” said Josh.
Josh has followed Carbon’s journey from the sidelines since 2016 and the appeal of partnering with Carbon was one that Josh couldn’t deny.
“My personal and professional values align perfectly with Carbon so when I was ready to branch out on my own, it was an easy decision to partner with Carbon. I’m really excited to be part of the team and am looking forward to the adventure.”
With Josh Dearle heading our R&D and Grants division, we’re excited for the future and how we can continue to help businesses navigate the complex world of R&D and Grants.
Josh will be based in our Osborne Park office, but can assist businesses nationally – all you need to do is get in touch!
