More senior advisers
Tax team expanded at EY Scotland
EY Scotland has increased the number of senior level advisors in the professional services firm’s corporate tax and People Advisory Services (PAS) team with the addition of two executive directors and one director in 2016.
Karen Davidson has joined EY as a director. She will be leading the firm’s share scheme and reward practice in Scotland and comes with 19 years’ experience gained at Pinsent Masons, formerly McGrigors.
EY Scotland has also welcomed the transfer of two executive directors from the UK practice. Claire Evans will head-up EY’s UK tax audit team and Simon Whiteside will lead EY tax’s continued focus on the owner managed business sector.
In January Laura Mair and Stewart Mathieson, both partners, took leadership of EY Scotland’s corporate team in the central belt and government and public sector tax team across Scotland respectively.
Laura Mair, EY Scotland Tax Partner, said: “These new appointments to our tax team demonstrate EY’s continued investment and growth in Scotland, while also bolstering our credentials as part of our global network.
“They join a 174-strong team of tax professionals across our four offices, working with small, medium and large businesses to navigate the tax landscape while also supporting their growth and international expansion ambitions.”
EY Scotland’s tax team has grown in strength and depth during the past 12 months with new recruits at managerial and senior advisor level across Corporate Tax, PAS and Innovations Incentives.
Specialties include employment tax, US tax and engineering insight in relation to the tax aspect of research and development.
