In addition, Stephen has significant sector expertise in the private equity and venture capital fund sector, covering fund structuring, EIS/CT tax reliefs for investors, tax support to the wealth management industry, the taxation of cryptoassets, and business life cycle planning, including providing tax advice to management teams on exit.
Chris Riley, Head of Tax, said: “We’re investing heavily in our Tax team, as it continues to expand and win new clients. Stephen’s arrival is an important step in ensuring that we remain at the forefront of providing trusted tax advice to our growing Personal Tax client base.
Stephen Kenny added: “PKF has a reputation for providing its clients with a deep understanding of complex tax issues in highly technical situations. This, together with Chris’s ambitions for the Tax team, is what makes the opportunity here so appealing to me. I’m looking forward to supporting PKF’s Personal Tax clients and helping to lead the firm’s continued success.”
