Former Grant Thornton Tax Director, Krista Fox, joins Streets as Tax Partner
Krista Fox has joined Streets (a UK top 40 accountancy firm) as a Tax Partner. She started last month.
Krista’s particular area of specialism includes advising on tax efficient business structures, the implications of buying and selling businesses, incentive arrangements and optimising tax reliefs. She will look after clients across all eleven offices covering Yorkshire, the East Midlands, East of England and London. Streets has 27 Partners and Directors and employs over 100 members of staff.
Krista commented: “There has never been a better time to talk to businesses and their owners about tax planning. The days of more aggressive ‘packaged’ tax planning are behind us and this is welcomed as such planning was a distraction from focussing on tax planning strategies aligned to business and personal objectives.
“Each change to the tax legislation brings increasing complexity along with opportunities to structure the affairs of businesses and their owners more tax efficiently. I am very much looking forward to working alongside the experienced team at Streets to explore tax planning opportunities with their clients and contacts.”
Chairman and Managing Partner, Paul Tutin, said: “Over the last 12 months or so we have focused on the development of our tax practice through recruiting high end technical advisers and specialists. Krista’s appointment, along with those made in the field of VAT and personal tax, are very much a part of our strategy to ensure we respond to the changing, and if anything a more complex, environment for tax compliance, legislation and planning.
“We are especially pleased to have attracted her to the firm, given her expertise and affinity in looking after the needs of entrepreneurial clients. Her appointment as Tax Partner means that we can now boast a dedicated tax practice of eight specialist Partners and Directors, with a further ten consultants and specialist advisers. We can therefore comfortably say we have one of the most robust tax offerings of any multi regional accountancy practice.”
