Alastair McLeish, Head of Tax and Pensions at KPMG in the UK, said:  “We are investing significantly in our People Services Tax practice as there are enormous growth opportunities there.  There are huge changes afoot in this area of tax: new rules on remuneration, new guidance on full time working abroad, changes to PAYE, a move to real time information provision on PAYE, a move to a statutory residence rules changes to the remittance basis and a proposal to merge NIC & Tax to name a few.  Our clients are demanding more and more advice on all these employment tax and other ‘people’ related issues together with the wider and more general challenge of just dealing with an increasingly globally mobile workforce.”

Mike Linter, Head of People Services Tax at KPMG in the UK, added:  “It’s a very exciting time for us in People Services Tax.  These new hires join an already strong team to significantly boost our capabilities and I look forward to working with Marc, Angus and Chris to make the most of the opportunities presented to us.”
