Partner - Tax
Michael has in excess of twenty years experience as a taxation professional. He first joined Grant Thornton in 1999 following roles as a Tax Manager in two “Big Four” firms.
Until late 2003, Michael provided taxation advice to entrepreneurial and owner managed businesses covering corporate taxation, restructuring of privately owned groups, capital gains tax, international tax issues including double tax treaty operation and transfer pricing rules. Additionally, he advised on fringe benefits tax, personal remuneration planning for senior executives particularly in relation to in-bound placements.
From late 2003 he held a senior taxation management and corporate secretarial role with a major international real estate, construction and investment group before accepting a position in 2006 as Financial Controller of a start up diversified property group. These commercial roles gave Michael high level exposure to the operations of rapidly expanding businesses and the challenges faced by management and business owners in driving and managing growth.
Michael returned to Grant Thornton as a Partner in our tax consulting division in August 2007.
