Private client boss role created at Smith & Williamson

SMITH & WILLIAMSON has promoted two of its senior tax professionals, in a move that reflects its new management structures.

Joss Dalrymple has been promoted to the newly-created role of national head of private client tax services.

The new position mirrors that of Tim Lyford’s appointment as head of corporate tax, as part of the firm’s focus on department heads for tax lines.

“My role is to ensure good communication between offices and teams about best ideas and practices and to help develop our rising stars,” said Dalrymple.

“With HMRC’s ever closer scrutiny of taxpayers’ finances, we can expect more rigorous challenges from HMRC in the future, particularly for those clients with offshore interests,” said Everett.
