Johnston Carmichael appoints new tax director

Scottish accountancy and business advisory firm Johnston Carmichael has further strengthened its Aberdeen office with a second senior strategic hire in three months.

Erin Davis has joined the corporate tax team as a director, where she will bring 18 years’ experience to her new role in the north of Scotland. The appointment is part of Johnston Carmichael’s strategy to offer the country’s “most comprehensive” tax advisory service, with Davis being the second senior strategic hire to join the firm’s overall tax team this year.

As a corporate tax specialist, Davis advises corporate clients on tax compliance and advice in an “ever-changing” landscape. Her expertise is supported by extensive experience working with small and large family owned businesses, with a particular focus on property, M&A and international tax.

Prior to joining Johnston Carmichael, she was a partner at BDO in Southampton and has held senior positions at a number of respected firms, including PKF Francis Clark and KPMG.

Davis said: “Johnston Carmichael has the most extensive and comprehensive tax offering in Scotland and I’m excited to add my experience to the firm, as it cements its position as the country’s leading voice on taxation.

“In the current economic environment, the need for specialist corporate tax advice is greater than ever and I’m excited to work with existing and new clients alike.”

Susie Walker, head of tax, Johnston Carmichael, added: “Erin’s appointment is another visible sign of the investment we continue to make to ensure Johnston Carmichael provides the best possible tax advisory service across Scotland. The award we received as ‘Best Tax Practice in a Regional Firm’ at last week’s Tolley’s Taxation Awards is a testament to the hard work we’ve put in and the comprehensive services we offer.

“I am certain our clients will benefit from the energy, enthusiasm and knowledge that Erin will bring to Johnston Carmichael. I look forward to working with Erin as our tax offering goes from strength to strength.”
