Swift manages a portfolio of clients and is responsible for the completion of tax returns, corresponding with HMRC within the tax department department at the Shrewsbury firm.
She was offered a training contract in 2014, after graduating from university, where she spent a one-year placement at the firm. Swift worked within the corporate department for two years before taking up her new role where she specialises in IHT planning, Trusts and Estates.
Commenting on her promotion, Swift said: “I’ve chosen this area of work as I recognise the importance that trusts can play in reducing Inheritance Tax bills, and how they give control over how assets are used and enjoyed by future generations.”
“People can be put off using trusts because they feel they are complicated or expensive, but with Inheritance Tax rates at 40%, the potential tax savings can easily outweigh the set-up and administration costs.”
Marie Bramwell, managing director of Dyke Yaxley added: “We have a reputation as a company that is keen to further the careers of our staff and, in particular, to support specialisms that are relevant to our clients.
“It’s always a pleasure to see employees take control of their careers early on and progress through the ranks to positions of real responsibility.”
