MPA Group acquires tax specialist Venture 4th

We are very pleased to announce our recent acquisition of specialist tax business Venture 4th.

This acquisition allows us to continue growing and help even more UK innovators access funds made available through various HMRC schemes.  With the Government keen to encourage more companies than ever to innovate, as demonstrated by Phillip Hammond’s pledge to invest an additional £2.3billion in R&D support this year, now really is the time for businesses to take advantage of the schemes such as Patent Box and R&D Tax Credits to fuel further investment in UK Plc, take on more staff and, ultimately, grow.

Who are Venture 4th?

Venture 4th, founded in 2004 by Mike Fagan, provides specialist tax advice to its client portfolio, including efficient employee share schemes, Enterprise Investment Schemes, Entrepreneur relief schemes, as well as R&D tax credits.

The company’s strong client-focused reputation makes it an ideal fit as we seek to supplement our strong annual organic growth with strategic acquisitions. The acquisition sees all current Venture 4th employees retained and further career opportunities created within the broader MPA Group.

Our Director, Mike Price, commented:

It’s great to have Venture 4th on board.  We're like-minded businesses and look forward to the opportunity this presents to support more businesses in funding their growth, so that they can continue to be successful and drive UK Plc forward.
MPA Group is continuously expanding and developing a suite of services to meet the needs of innovative businesses. As the only professional services firm that specialises on the technology sector, including engineering, manufacturing, high tech processing, life sciences and pharmaceutical, we remain uniquely placed to ensure that the companies that are taking the risks that come with innovating are rewarded via the funds available to help them grow. Venture 4th have the skills, professional experience and client portfolio to ensure that together we can support even more of the UK’s most innovative and dynamic businesses.

Mike Price, Director at MPA Group
