AN EX-KPMG AND RSM TENON tax advisor has launched a boutique tax advice firm.
Iain Wright will head up Claritas Tax and will offer services relating to transactions, international expansion and business taxes to clients across the Midlands.
Wright has 16 years’ experience in accounting and has worked both in start-ups and multinationals.
He said: “The coalition government has the objective of creating the most competitive tax system in the G20. This has resulted in a number of opportunities for Midlands businesses to benefit from measures such as the enhancement of the R&D tax relief system, the 10% tax rate offered by the patent box and various improvements made to the taxation of profits earned overseas.
“With so many changes to the tax system, our focus is on providing tax advice which supports the commercial objectives of our clients.”
