Deloitte has appointed Paul Knight as a tax partner, and in this role Knight will lead the firm’s corporation tax advisory services to the public sector and charities.

Paul Knight, Tax Partner at Deloitte commented: “I am thrilled to be joining a firm with such a breadth and depth of capabilities.  I will be using my experience to deliver tax advice that adds value to the public and not for profit sectors as they continue to evolve, diversify and commercialise.”

“The tax environment has never been more complex for these organisations, and Deloitte’s approach to providing the very best tax advisory services, is entirely aligned to my personal enthusiasm and commitment to working in this sector.”

Ben Powell, head of public sector tax at Deloitte, said: “Paul is a terrific addition to our partnership – his knowledge and insight in the public sector and charities space is unrivalled, and his leadership in our tax services will enable us to provide ever greater support to housing associations, universities, charities and the wider public sector.”

Rebecca George, head of public sector for Deloitte added: “The public sector is going through unprecedented change and the need to properly manage tax implications is increasing, a factor we are seeing every day through the work that we do across transformation, finance and technology.”
