Andrew advises on a broad range of tax issues for companies, business owners and private individuals. A major part of Andrew’s work is advising on the transition of companies to employee ownership via Employee Ownership Trusts (“EOT”) and advising existing EOTs on issues involving the operation of the trust including the sale of the company owned by the EOT.
Andrew works with the Corporate teams across the whole firm to provide tax advice on their transactions including acquisitions, disposals and corporate group reorganisations plus advice on the adoption and implementation of share option schemes. He works collaboratively with other tax advisers to identify key issues and find mutually acceptable solutions. Andrew provides advice to the Property and Private Client teams on stamp taxes with particular emphasis on SDLT and LTT. Andrew was a member of the Welsh Government’s Tax Advisory Group and saw first-hand the development of LTT from inception to implementation. Andrew presents on share options and other employee incentives to the Chartered Institute of Taxation and regularly contributes to legal publications.
