DeVere Group’s new global head of tax, Neil Walker, said the consultancy had been established to meet an ongoing and growing demand from existing and potential clients.
“With more and more individuals become internationally mobile, and the evolving UK and global tax, legislative and regulatory environments, a fresh approach was required,” he said.
DeVere is one of the world’s largest independent advisory firms, with a network of more than 70 offices globally, over 80,000 clients and $10bn under advisement.
“Until now, few options were available in the marketplace to meet the specialist, U.S., UK, and/or globally-focused requirements our clients needed,” said Walker who spent almost a decade within Ernst & Young’s expat division.
“With more and more individuals becoming internationally mobile, and the evolving UK and global tax, legislative and regulatory environments, a fresh approach was required.
“Using our worldwide network, we devise, implement and manage innovative tax strategies that enable our clients to successfully navigate the complex tax systems and ensure they are fully compliant whilst taking full advantage of the allowances available to them to reduce their tax burdens,” he said.
