New Partner for Larking Gowen Tax Advisory Team
Leading East Anglian chartered accountancy firm, Larking Gowen, has appointed a new Partner for its Tax Advisory Team.
Dominic Carter joined the firm's Ipswich office as a Tax Director in 2019, supporting the tax advisory offering across the business. He has more than 20 years' experience as a Chartered Accountant in national and regional firms.
His specialisms include corporate, shareholder and stamp taxes, with areas of interest including the structuring of corporate and property transactions, demergers and reconstructions, buyouts, mergers and acquisitions.
"There has been tremendous growth in the tax advisory business, and we have seen quite a few promotions and new recruits to the team," he said.
"My role is mainly with larger owner managed businesses, where we have seen a very high demand for tax services, both from a company and shareholder perspective.
"We have been looking at property tax aspects, re-organisations, share schemes and equity rewards. Clients are thinking about how they want to position themselves for the future, and the ability of our team to support them has driven growth for us.
"The response to this demand from Larking Gowen has been absolutely fantastic. The growth reflects how we operate as a firm. There is a mindset across all parts of the business and at all levels, to look for opportunities to help our clients and look at their needs holistically."
He said that since lockdown, clients had become more proactive about changing the structure of their companies and planning for the future of their businesses.
"COVID has made people think strategically about the future. They've had time to contemplate and challenge the way things are done, not just as business owners, but also as individuals. By working together across the firm, we've been able to cater for these changes," he said.
Managing Partner Julie Grimmer said, "I'm delighted to see Dominic in his new role as Partner in the Tax Advisory team. We have seen steady growth in this area of the business, not least because of the strength and expertise of the team."
