Chris has over 37 years of tax experience and joined MHA in January 2013 following the merger with HMT Assurance LLP. He joined HMT in 2008 having previously spent nearly 20 years split between PwC and latterly KPMG.
Chris has provided a comprehensive range of advice and expertise for a range of corporate clients, from entrepreneurially owned start ups to large corporate/ multinationals. This includes advising on, for example, mergers and acquisitions, group restructuring, inbound/outbound expansion, CFC’s, PE’s, shareholder planning, employee incentivisation, transfer pricing strategy and compliance and profit extraction/repatriation.
As well as extensive transactional tax expertise Chris has developed an intuitive understanding of the interaction of taxes in relation to the ongoing provision of tax advice and works very closely with his clients in order that he can proactively identify issues and opportunities for tax planning which can be aligned with commercial goals and activities.
Throughout Chris’s career he has always focused on gaining a technical and practical understanding of the major developments in corporate and international taxation as they evolve, such as BEPS, Pillar 2 and ESG.
