Knill James signs five to tax team


Accountancy firm Knill James has expanded its tax team after taking on five new senior appointments with more than 100 years of tax experience between them.

Lorna Sizer (Senior Manager, Personal Tax) and private client experts Kirsty Royds-Jones and Sarah Robinson have already joined the team together with Alison Sampson (Senior VAT advisor). Michael Chapman (Senior Manager, Corporate Tax) begins work this month.

All five have extensive experience in their specialist field and are well known in the local market, having previously worked for Mazars in Brighton. Their arrival adds to Knill James’ reputation as one of the biggest independent accountancy firms in the region.

Nick Rawson, Partner at Knill James which is based in Bell Lane, Lewes, says: “We are delighted to welcome all five to our expanding tax team at Knill James. They bring with them a tremendous amount of experience and expertise, and their arrival is a real coup for the firm.

“The strength and depth of our tax team now means Knill James can rightly be regarded as the go-to accountancy firm for tax advice in Sussex and beyond – for both personal and corporate clients.”
Knill James has been helping clients for over 127 years and has a team of more than 60 people at its Lewes office.

Its tax team, which is now 10 strong, offers advice on a wide range of issues, including planning solutions, Trusts and Estates, Corporate and Personal Tax, Tax Compliance, Tax Investigation and VAT advisory. The team designs bespoke strategies to help clients, from individuals to large companies, to optimise their tax affairs.

Knill James also offers its own Tax App, using latest technology to provide clients with useful tax tools and information via their mobile device. It can be downloaded for free from the App Store for Apple devices and from Google Play for Android devices.

Other services offered by the firm include Business Services, Wealth Management, Audit and Assurance, Corporate Finance, Business Strategy, Payroll, Management Accounts and Outsourcing.
