Walton boosts accountants’ life sciences team
Ms Walton has more than 20 years’ experience advising clients on domestic and international tax, R&D and entrepreneurial tax issues. She is based in the firm’s Edinburgh office.
Chairman Alan Davis said: “Barbara’s promotion reflects her considerable expertise and track record in advising companies of all sizes as they tackle the various stages of growth.”
The Life Sciences Scotland Industry Leader Group, chaired by Business and Innovation Minister Paul Wheelhouse, recently set out its ambitions to almost double industrial turnover to £8 billion by 2025.
Ms Walton said: “Life sciences firms often move in to international markets at a relatively early stage.
“It is essential that they understand the tax implications of each business model open to them as they expand their operations.”
