Tax firm announces appointment of Associate Tax Partner

Claritas Tax, the UK’s leading independent tax consultancy firm has strengthened its tax offering with the appointment of Associate Partner Al Milne as Head of Equity Reward for the firm, based in their Manchester office.

Al is a Chartered Tax Adviser and member of the Association of Taxation Technicians, with 16 years’ experience specialising in the tax aspects of management incentivisation and share schemes.

He joins Claritas from a Big 4 firm and comments: I chose Claritas because as soon as I met the team, I could tell it would be a great place to work. On top of that, the performance Claritas has shown to date and the plans they have for the future meant the opportunity was one I couldn’t say no to. My focus is helping companies to recruit, retain and incentivise their employees. Each business is different and at varying points of their overall strategy which I enjoy, as I work with them to understand their needs and then develop a tailored incentive solution for them.”

Commenting on the appointment, Matthew Hodgson, Partner and Head of Manchester Office at Claritas, said: “We are very excited to have Al joining us, particularly with his particular deep specialism of equity reward which is in constant demand across our client base.  Al will enhance our credibility as a full-service tax offering to the mid-market and is a fantastic cultural fit in the team, which we place a great deal of emphasis on when recruiting.  I have no doubt he will be a great success and have a very fulfilling career with Claritas.”

Iain Wright, Founding Partner and Head of Birmingham Office continued: “Al brings with him a wealth of experience to our highly reputable practice. With his valuable and stellar technical tax skills, we’re confident he will further bolster our regional and national offering throughout 2024 as we continue our strategic growth.”
