Tax experts welcome new partner

Financial and professional services firm Smith & Williamson has continued to grow its Birmingham office with the appointment of new partner David Yewdall. 

David joins Smith & Williamson as a partner in the Employment Tax and Incentives team, having joined from the Birmingham office of PwC, and he's the latest in a series of new appointments.

Krista Woodman recently joined as director of Private Client Tax Services in a year which saw Stephen Drew appointed Professional Services Managing partner and fellow partner Matt Watts become head of Birmingham Business Tax Services.

David Yewdall’s core specialism involves handling international employment tax matters in various jurisdictions, as well as UK domestic employer compliance issues. 

Having worked with a range of corporate clients across all sectors, ranging from entrepreneurial and owner managed businesses to listed companies, David has extensive experience in successfully managing a number of global mobility programmes, advising clients on the various tax and social security planning opportunities surrounding the movement of their people on an international scale. 

He said: “I was very impressed with Smith & Williamson’s tax offering and I’m really excited to be strengthening the team of experts in Birmingham at such an exciting time of growth, both in terms of the office as a whole and also in terms of further strengthening the service we offer our large corporate clients across the UK on global mobility, employment taxes and people incentives in particular.” 

Matt Watts said: “It’s great to have David on board as another excellent addition to our team. We will continue to heavily invest in our people and infrastructure to enable us to offer a wide range of business tax services to our growing local, national and international client base.”
