New partner to head up Henderson Loggie VAT team

HENDERSON LOGGIE has promoted Alan Davis to partner in its Dundee office.

Davis (pictured), previously a director, will head up the VAT team across all four offices – Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen. 

He joined the firm in 2005 having previously worked for KPMG in its Aberdeen and Edinburgh offices. Prior to that, he worked at Customs & Excise for 16 years based in Aberdeen and Hull.

Davis is currently chairman of the Scottish branch of the VAT Practitioners Group and a member of ICAS’ VAT technical committee. He is also a contributor to the HMRC “Working Together” initiative – a partnership between HMRC and institutes looking at ways to improve HMRC’s operations for tax advisers and their clients.

Managing partner of Henderson Loggie, David Smith, said: “Alan’s experience is a valuable asset to the firm and as we continue to expand our VAT practice it was a very easy decision to appoint him as partner.

“As director he already successfully led the VAT team and in addition to that role he will also be responsible for leading our work with student associations, a specialist area in which he has extensive knowledge.”

The firm has also recruited Donald Shanks as senior manager in the Edinburgh insolvency team.

Shanks joins from KPMG where he was a manager in its Aberdeen office. Prior to that, he has held senior roles at Zolfo Cooper and BDO, as well as spending five years at Deloitte, latterly as assistant manager.

Henderson Loggie came 50th in the Accountancy Age Top50+50 league table in 2012 with a fee income of £11.3m.
