Head of tax role ditched at RSM Tenon

UK's seventh largest firm says it will have heads of discipline within tax, but confirms Andrew Jupp's role of national head of tax has been dropped

RSM Tenon has dropped the role of national head of tax as part of it sweeping
merger moves.

Accountancy Age
learned
this week tax chief Andrew Jupp
was leaving RSM Tenon, now the UK’s seventh
biggest firm.

Across the Audit, Tax and Advisory service lines the firm says it will have
“heads of discipline” within tax – for instance VAT, employment, tax
investigations and strategic tax advice.

“Each of the disciplines has its own head, ensuring that every possible
aspect of tax has maximum impact and benefit for our clients. This gives far
greater prominence to taxation than any of our competitors,” an RSM Tenon
spokeswoman said.

Tenon’s link-up with RSM Bentley Jennison was seen as a major success but the
combined firm is now trying to smooth out the overlap caused by having offices
in the same region.

The changes have not affected its service offering RSM Tenon stressed.

“The commitment of RSM Tenon to tax has been and is unparalleled.The firm has
led the way in planning for our clients with The Wealth Experience – this will
continue.”
