THE team of dynamic tax and accountancy experts attracted major headlines – after our Professional Services PR team gave voice to their warning of a tax timebomb facing thousands of property owners.

Borders-based accountancy firm Douglas Home & Co raise the alarm over a little-known Capital Gains Tax shock awaiting people who are selling second homes, holiday homes or investment properties.

To help the firm amplify its important message, it called on Scotland’s leading PR experts – the team right here at Holyrood PR in Edinburgh.

Our story-telling skills ensured a wave of coverage which included:

Sheryl Macaulay, a Director at DHCO, voiced her concerns about the tax bombshell, warning that smaller legal firms could become collateral damage, as their clients are unwittingly caught up by the problems.

And she urged lawyers – especially those who work in the property market or settling estates, will and executries – to get in touch with expert accountants to save themselves from a world of pain.

As a result, Sheryl and the team were particularly delighted when the story appeared in the highly influential news site and accompanying e-newsletter, Scottish Legal News. Both the site and the newsletter are widely read by lawyers and legal firm employees across Scotland – the exact target audience.

Further major coverage in two of Scotland’s most respected quality news titles – The Scotsman and the Press & Journal – also ensured the call to action was put in front of exactly the right people. Both news titles are widely read among the legal community AND by property investors.

Coverage in a raft of respected news titles also helps build trust for Douglas Home & Co, highlighting them as forward-thinking, proactive thought leaders in the accountancy world.
