Regional chartered accountancy firm Albert Goodman has announced today that Anne Gardner-Thorpe has joined the firm as a Tax Partner, based in their Taunton headquarters, to bolster the firm’s private client expertise across the South West.

Anne brings a wealth of experience with her in both the corporate and private client sectors, most recently in the private client tax field at BDO, advising on all income tax, CGT and IHT/estate planning matters, both on and offshore.

Working in some of the Top 10 UK firms – including Smith & Williamson, Deloitte and Monahans - and an ex-HMRC tax inspector, Anne holds both the STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) Diploma in Trusts & Estates, as well as the Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) qualification.

Anne will join Albert Goodman’s well-established tax team, working alongside current tax partners, Tracey Watts and Dominic Crilly.

“I’m thrilled to join such a friendly and reputable chartered accountancy firm in a region that boasts such a vibrant and exciting business community. My expertise lends itself to navigating clients through their tax challenges, which can often be perceived as a minefield. If I can help take the burden off business owners, this will allow them to achieve greater success that much quicker.”

We take great pleasure in welcoming Anne to Albert Goodman and we are eager to introduce her to our clients so they can benefit from her tax knowledge and experience.”
