James Keane

James is a Tax Partner based in EY’s Birmingham office, working as part of EYs Global Compliance and Reporting team.

In a world where increasing compliance and reporting demands are being placed on businesses, and where authorities are applying new methods of understanding the customer’s business, understanding those requirements and the changes being made is increasingly important. James supports clients in ensuring their requirements are met, applying practical and pragmatic solutions, leveraging the developments we have made in technology to gain insights and drive efficiency through the compliance process.

James works with our clients to understand their current processes, identifying where improvements can be made to deliver value to the business, or helping create change in the future operating model to ensure the business, and its tax function, are fit for the future.

James has over 20 years experience leading relationships with large global organisations, covering domestic and global compliance across accounting and tax, operating model design, process review using lean principles, and application of technology to advance the efficiency and effectiveness of use of data across the tax function.
