Penman leaves Smith & Williamson to become Personal Tax Director at PKF London
PKF Accountants & business advisers has appointed Andrew Penman to the London tax team as Personal Tax Director.
Andrew joins from Smith & Williamson, where he spent over 16 years in the Private Client Tax Services team. The majority of his experience is with international personal tax issues, principally on tax planning for non-UK domiciled individuals and for individuals coming to the UK to live and work, or leaving the UK either temporarily or permanently.
Andrew’s work also involved acting for wealthy families, including some substantial family trusts (both UK and offshore) where capital gains tax and inheritance tax planning were the main issue, and for entrepreneurs where good personal tax planning helps maximise value when exiting a venture. His experience has also included assisting private client investment management firms in designing their annual tax reporting and capital gains tax planning systems.
Andrew said: “The current economic climate in the UK, alongside the new coalition government, means the tax landscape has already undergone a raft of changes and there will be more to come. Clients will need specialist advice and I look forward to advising and offering them the solutions they need.”
