Top tax commentator leaves E&Y
Anne Redston, partner at Ernst & Young and one of the profession's most senior voices on tax, is to leave the firm on 30 April 2005 following 'internal reorganisation'.
Redston has been a partner with E&Y for nine years, and is well-known commentator on a wide range of tax issues. For the last three years she has been partner in charge of one of E&Y’s five tax departments.
She told Accountancy Age that she is leaving to pursue other interests, including potentially living and working in China.
Aidan O’Carroll, head of tax at E&Y, said, ‘I am sorry to lose Anne, who has made a tremendous contribution to the firm. I know that Anne will continue to be very active in the tax advisory market, including helping us in the future, and I wish her well.’
Redston will continue to be a member of the council of the Chartered Institute of Taxation and chairman of its personal taxes committee. She is also on the council and executive committee of the Institute for Fiscal Studies.
