RPG Crouch Chapman adds three new partners

The appointments cover VAT, Tax and its Audit departments

RPG Crouch Chapman Chartered Accountants has announced it has made three new partner appointments.

Kelly Eland has been appointed as its new VAT partner. Eland is a VAT professional with over 20 years of experience initially with the Big Four where she qualified and worked within the VAT practice until 2013.

She also has experience working in-house with listed clients and over the past five years has worked as an independent VAT consultant. She focuses on planning and advisory work and specialises in VAT exemptions and reliefs, whilst also working across all sectors.

RPG also confirmed Tim Humphries is set to join as Tax partner. He has 18 years’ experience in mixed tax roles. Having trained with a top 10 firm, once he qualified in 2006 he gained specialist experience in Owner-Managed Businesses and international private clients.

Throughout his career, RPG said Humphries has “maintained a broad knowledge of tax” to enable him to provide integrated holistic solutions to entrepreneurial tax issues. He also has a strong focus on international tax issues.

He has worked with clients in a wide range of sectors such as property, technology, professional services as well as private clients.

In addition, the final appointment sees Mark Wilson take up the role of Audit partner. He has 27 years’ experience in accounting practice both in the UK and overseas. Wilson qualified as a chartered accountant with Coopers and Lybrand after working in the manufacturing industry, which included a one-year secondment to internal audit.

RPG revealed a “significant number” of his clients have been foreign-invested and therefore required to comply with both group and local regulatory requirements. Services have included incorporation assistance, pre-acquisition reviews, outsourced finance function as well as audit and internal control reviews.

He has also worked widely under both IFRS and US GAAP and has presented to external audiences on the use and first-time application of IFRS in addition to the implementation of FRS 102 in the UK.

Based on this experience, Wilson currently serves both foreign invested and domestic clients in the UK.

Commenting on the appointments the firm said: “We believe these strategic appointments expand our expertise and will enable us to provide our clients with invaluable advice through these challenging times to survive and thrive as the economy recovers from the pandemic.”
