Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM UK has appointed Simon Atkins as partner within its VAT team in London. 

Simon has extensive expertise across a range of industries, including real estate, sporting bodies, and healthcare and life sciences. He joins RSM from Deloitte, where he gained 22 years’ experience in advising clients on indirect tax issues, including the complex VAT rules around property, partial exemption and electronically supplied services. 

Simon joins the highly successful National VAT team and will form part of the VAT leadership team in London, which has grown rapidly over the last five years to nearly 30 people. 

Simon Atkins, VAT partner at RSM UK, comments: ‘After many years of seeing RSM as an active, fast growing business in the marketplace, I’m very excited to be joining the team. I look forward to contributing to the firm’s continued growth strategy for VAT.’

Ian Carpenter, partner and head of indirect tax at RSM UK, said: ‘Simon is a fantastic addition to the team, with the demand for advice continuing to increase as clients navigate the post-Brexit indirect tax landscape. He will play a key role in enhancing our VAT offering for clients and developing our junior team members. I’m very much looking forward to working with him.’
