Clive Owen appoints fifth tax partner amid expansion plans

Further appointments are set to be made in the coming months to add further depth to the tax team

Clive Owen, chartered accountants and business advisers, have appointed David Baggaley as a fifth tax partner at the growing firm.

Baggaley joins the firm, which has offices in Darlington, Durham, Middlesbrough, and York, from EY where he was an associate partner leading the private tax team in the North East and Yorkshire providing tax advice to both corporates and individuals.

Across the four offices currently, the firm now employs 117 people. The Clive Owen tax team has four tax partners, nine fully qualified chartered tax advisers and four trainee-chartered tax advisers, within the 17 strong team, making it one of the largest independent tax teams in the region.

In addition, further appointments are set to be made in the coming months to add further depth to the tax team.

Baggaley said: “I am very pleased to be joining such a well-respected firm as Clive Owen. The firm has an entrepreneurial client base which I know I will very much enjoy working with.”

“It is a very exciting time for Tees Valley with Freeport status and the Treasury and other Government departments which are relocating part of their functions to Darlington. Clive Owen is very well placed to take advantage of the resurgence of the area, and I am looking forward to playing my part in this.”

Gary Ellis, managing partner, said: “David is an exceptional appointment who will further strengthen our excellent tax team. The firm has won a significant amount of new client work and seen an increase in demand from existing clients for tax advisory projects including re-organisations, tax relief claims and inheritance tax advice and a tax partner of his calibre will help support the firm as we drive further growth.”
