Steven Abbott Partner - Tax Advisory
Steve is a Chartered Tax Adviser who leads our tax practice in Manchester and has spent over 20 years working in Tax. Steve helps clients in all sectors but specialises in working with entrepreneurial privately owned businesses advising the companies and their shareholders on relevant tax issues. In particular Steve works with many fast-growing private equity backed businesses helping them navigate the complexities of their capital structure helping them through the next phase of growth to the ultimate aim of a successful transaction.
Steve has extensive experience helping clients achieve their growth objectives and resolve any challenges around risks, growth and incentivisation. This involves helping clients with a wide range of tax issues from share options to R&D tax credits to robust tax compliance.
Steve works closely with our audit and deal advisory teams because his view is that while tax issues are always important, commercial factors should always be the main driver of growth or a transaction.
