BDO poaches tax boss from rival

Smith & Williamson says it was not seeking a replacement for Ives, who has joined BDO Stoy Hayward as partner and head of professional services tax

Smith & Williamson will plough on without a replacement for Colin Ives,
its head of professional practices tax, who was swooped up by BDO Stoy Hayward
this week.

The firm said it was not seeking a replacement for Ives, who has joined BDO
Stoy Hayward as partner and head of professional services tax.

Accountancy Age understands that Smith & Williamson’s current
professional practices team, chaired by Simon Mabey, will pick up the slack
following Ives’ departure. The team has also expanded in the last 12 months.

BDO Stoy Hayward head of professional service Nick Carter-Pegg said that Ives
would ‘bring an additional dynamic to our client service offering’.

Ernst & Young announced it own swoop this week, poaching three forensic
technology consultants from KPMG. Despite the loss, KPMG said it plans to build
its team to 100 from 60 in the next year.
