New director for team
Courtney takes global tax post at Johnston Carmichael
Peter Courtney joins from HMRC, where he most recently led the international investigation team for large businesses in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
With 13 years’ experience as an Inspector of Taxes, he holds an advanced diploma with distinction in international tax.
At Johnston Carmichael, he and his team will advise on strategy, risk management and dispute resolution across a range of international corporate tax issues, including overseas expansion plans, transfer pricing, diverted profits tax, cross border financing, permanent establishment and double tax relief.
Peter said: “With Brexit continuing to dominate the headlines, we still do not know how or indeed when the UK will leave the EU. This has created a particularly challenging environment for businesses operating internationally.”
