Rakesh joined Buzzacott in 2020 and is a Partner in our Private Client team.
Rakesh works with high-net-worth individuals who are either UK resident or non-UK resident with UK assets, onshore and offshore trustees and their structures, as well as family and private offices. Many of his clients have an international element, either because they have assets or structures outside of the UK, or they are moving to and from the UK, which always requires careful tax planning.
Rakesh carries out tax advisory and compliance services for clients with complicated financial affairs and multi-jurisdiction assets by providing a family office service. He has over 20 years’ experience in providing tax advisory services to UK resident but non-UK domiciled high-net-worth individuals and his specialist knowledge also includes offshore trust and corporate structures.
He works closely with Buzzacott’s Expatriate Tax Services, Financial Planning, Tax Investigations and Corporate teams. As his clients have a myriad of ownership structures with complicated financial investments, having the other areas of expertise enables him to provide his clients with a holistic service.
Rakesh trained with Grant Thornton in London, his qualifications include ATT, CIOT STEP and CISI memberships. He spent 10 years at the Royal Bank of Canada in both Jersey and London before moving to Switzerland to head up a private office for a Swiss private bank. Prior to joining Buzzacott, Rakesh spent three years at Rayner Essex.
Outside of the office he enjoys playing cricket and coaching the U13 and U15 colts at a local community cricket club. He also fundraises for various charities and mentors young people. Rakesh also likes spending time with his young daughter.
