Chris focuses on all aspects of how a corporation manages its worldwide tax compliance responsibilities. Chris helps companies assess the size and activities of their internal tax function. Inevitably, this involves balancing commercial aspects with regulatory requirements and companies are increasingly looking to the use of technology to automate otherwise manual activities.
Companies are very focused on meeting their compliance obligations in the easiest fashion, but with robust control and governance. Chris assists corporates work through their strategy with respect to tax, and leads teams where an ultimate decision is made to outsource the global compliance affairs. Tax profiles and attributes across worldwide groups is increasingly important for clients and bringing visibility of these across a group is increasingly important.
Chris has been a partner for over 15 years and spent a considerable part of this time working across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India.
Chris is the Operate Leader for the Business Tax practice in the UK.
