What can Kevin do for you?
Kevin’s job is to help clients understand the tax issues that affect their transaction or business and, where commercial and practical, to structure each situation so as to minimise their tax liabilities. He advises on M&A transactions, reorganisations, outsourcing, setting up in the UK, VAT advice, HR tax and tax advice for management shareholders.
Supporting your ambitions
Structuring transactions to achieve the optimum tax result for clients while working within the confines of the commercial deal, and what is practical, is what Kevin specialises in. For example, employees or directors buying or selling shares in the company they work for have to be particularly careful to avoid unexpected tax charges. This is particularly the case where they are paying or being paid a different price to others, or are taking an element of deferred consideration or earn-out.
What do others say?
Kevin’s best testimonial was from a US client who simply called him "the first damn tax guy I've ever been able to understand!"
What else should you know?
Kevin is a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation, a notoriously difficult qualification for lawyers to obtain, and has been a specialist in this field for over 25 years.
