Mark Atkinson, head of transfer pricing at Deloitte, said: “Richard brings with him extensive transfer pricing and corporate tax expertise.

Richard Coombes added: “The combination of increasing regulatory demands and the transformation within HMRC, along with rapid business change and growing complexity make transfer pricing an area of prime importance for UK businesses. I am delighted to be joining a talented team which is clearly focused on helping clients address these strategic challenges to achieve real competitive advantage.”
