PKF Littlejohn expands tax team with VAT specialist appointment

The London member of PKF International has appointed former PwC VAT partner Nick McChesney to its ranks

PKF LITTLEJOHN, the London member firm of PKF International, has appointed veteran VAT specialist Nick McChesney as partner, bringing the number of tax partners and directors at the growing firm to seven.

McChesney, chair of the ICAEW’s VAT and duties sub-committee, is an indirect tax expert with more than 26 years’ experience.

Since leaving Big Four firm PwC as a VAT partner in 2009, he has been an independent indirect tax consultant advising national and international clients in the not for profit, real estate, information technology, waste management and travel sectors.

Commenting on his appointment, McChesney said: “The opportunity to work on varied and complex domestic and international VAT challenges across a range of industry sectors provided by PKF Littlejohn clients and the PKF International network is compelling.”

Over the past 18 months the firm has grown significantly in size, having in January 2015 appointed AIM-specialist Joseph Archer as partner, and then adding three partners and five other professionals from inward investment specialists Fitzgerald & Law.

In March PKF Littlejohn also appointed Rhodri Whitlock as an assurance and advisory partner.

Carmine Papa, managing partner, said: “Our clients are increasingly international in their outlook and Nick’s appointment will strengthen the VAT and Customs team that provides essential support to these corporate and not-for -profit clients’ national and international business activities.

“Nick’s appointment is another big step towards the firm’s target to grow its income and recruit high-performing people to help our clients succeed.

“VAT specialists with strong international experience will always be in great demand as trading with our international partners continues to grow.  I am delighted that Nick has agreed to join the firm.”
