SPARE a thought for Alasdair Cairns, who joined leading mid-tier accountants French Duncan as corporate tax senior just over two years ago – only to discover this month that his dad is his new boss.
John Cairns, former tax director at BDO, has just joined French Duncan as a tax partner in its Glasgow office.
TS shudders at the thought of having to work for Old Father TS, but remains hopeful that Cairns and son will make a great father-son combo. Think Peter and Dan Snow, or Martin and Charlie Sheen.
Taxing affairs must be in the genes in the Cairns family. Particularly useful, perhaps, when it comes to advising family-owned businesses about succession and such matters?
