Steven is a Midlands partner in EY UK’s International Tax Services group, providing tax advisory services to a wide range of UK and foreign-based multinational companies.
Steven’s experience spans more than 20 years across a number of industries, with key clients in the airline, consumer products, retail, pharmaceutical, industrial, automotive and aerospace sectors.
With the OECD BEPS project changing the international tax landscape, Steven has advised many clients on the importance of aligning their business substance to their legal and operational structure. This has ensured his clients have robust structures that minimise the risk of unintended frictional taxes (such as withholding taxes on repatriation of cash or exit taxes on future value realisation).
Steven has a strong network across many countries, and is able to call on personal contacts across EY’s global network to serve his clients. He receives consistently strong feedback on his ability to coordinate large cross border teams and to develop innovative solutions.
Steven has also spent time as a partner advising domestic UK businesses on managing their tax affairs and relationship with the UK tax authorities including helping groups deliver high quality tax compliance.
