New director will lead tax division

Smith Cooper has welcomed tax director Adam Rollason to the team who will focus on driving forward all aspects of the firm’s tax operations in its Birmingham office.

A chartered certified accountant and chartered tax advisor, Adam joins from Grant Thornton where he previously worked as a private business tax manager. One of five nominees shortlisted for the  Future Faces of Finance in the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Future Faces awards, Adam has 12 years’ experience in roles spanning several disciplines and jurisdictions.

Adam will be joining a progressive tax division that offers both corporate and personal tax services, helping clients plan a tailored and tax-efficient approach to every aspect of their business and/or personal life.

Smith Cooper’s specialist corporate tax division advises on all types of national and international transactions, from mergers and acquisitions, to sales and reconstructions, providing advice that is both flexible and practical. Working alongside experts in other specialist divisions, the team co-ordinates and delivers a holistic range of transactional advisory services, helping clients optimise their tax position and navigate complex taxation considerations, whilst considering the most suitable strategic options that are available.

Adam said: “I am delighted to be joining Smith Cooper to head up the tax advisory offering across the west Midlands. Having met with a number of the firm’s partners and listened to their ambitious plans for the future, I knew that this was the right place for me to be on taking my first step into leadership.

“In the short term, our vision is to develop an offering which will rival that of our main competitors across the region. Looking beyond that, we fully intend on being the go-to tax advisers within the owner-managed space across the west Midlands.”

Darren Hodson, a corporate finance partner based in the Birmingham office, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Adam to the team and look forward to watching him flourish in his new role as he helps to expand our tax offering in the marketplace.

“Adam retains a specialism within the M&A arena, advising both corporates and owner managers on both sale and buy side transactions, which will prove invaluable for our client base, and I look forward to working alongside him.”

Stephen Newman, also a partner in Smith Cooper’s Birmingham office, said: “Adam will play an integral role in the development of Smith Cooper’s specialist tax division in Birmingham and also across our wider firm, by working alongside experts in our Derby, Nottingham and Ashbourne offices. By harnessing the skills and experience that he’s accumulated, we’re confident that our tax team will continue to go from strength to strength.

“Our team here in Birmingham is undergoing an exciting period of strategic development at the moment, having achieved phenomenal success in the last year, and quadrupling our revenues over the last 5 years.

“Paul Kurowski, who was appointed director of audit last year has now taken a lead role with responsibility for growing the firm’s client base, and there have been several promotions, new intakes and some really exciting client opportunities. We hope to continue on this upward trajectory, recruiting and retaining the very best in the field.”
