Sarah joined Buzzacott in 2017 and is a Manager in our Business Services team.
Her clients range from start-ups to large international groups. The UK’s complex and ever-changing tax system can be overwhelming for clients and can leave them unsure of whether they have met all their compliance requirements with HMRC. Sarah’s aim as a tax adviser is to maintain an awareness of the changes happening within the tax system and identify how new legislative changes could affect, or benefit, her clients.
She and the team carry out tax advisory and compliance support for clients, including tax efficient business restructuring, securing tax clearances from HMRC on group restructuring, advising on tax efficient employee incentive share schemes and carrying out tax due diligence. Sarah’s specialism is supporting companies with their share schemes, ranging from EMI compliance to tailoring and advising on growth share schemes for larger groups.
On the tax compliance side, Sarah works closely with the Corporate Audit and Accounts teams to ensure clients’ accounts and tax computations are prepared accurately and efficiently. She collaborates with the Corporate Finance team to assist with the tax structuring of transactions and to deliver tax due diligence services. Sarah also collaborates with Buzzacott’s Private Client and Expatriate Tax teams to facilitate tax efficient profit extraction for shareholders of owner managed businesses.
Sarah joined Buzzacott straight from university and will soon qualify for ACA and CTA. Away from her desk she enjoys trying new experiences in and around London, including trips to different markets, restaurants, pubs and theatres.
