TWO senior tax professionals have joined the Scottish tax team at EY.
Moray Barber, who takes on the role of tax partner, will be based in Aberdeen and primarily serve the energy sector.
Moray has more than 20 years of experience supporting clients with complex tax issues across a diverse range of sectors, predominantly oil and gas.
Moray’s appointment follows that of Duncan Reoch as Associate Partner who joined in March to lead the Scotland Private Client team.
Duncan manages the team across offices based in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness providing both personal and corporate tax services to both individuals and privately-owned businesses.
Derek Leith, EY’s managing partner in Aberdeen, said: “The appointment of Moray and Duncan to EY’s tax practice is a boost for our clients based in the north east and Scotland-wide.
“It is fantastic to have not one but two tax professionals of such a high calibre as Moray and Duncan join EY in quick succession.
“In the north-east many businesses work within the oil and gas sector and have the additional considerations of navigating the current low oil price environment while also seeking to capitalise on the opportunities offered by energy transition.
“Our team is committed and invested in the success of our clients and we are dedicated in the provision of long-term value to clients as they pursue their growth ambitions in the domestic market and further afield.”
The Aberdeen appointments come a few months after EY announced its move to 2 Marischal Square as part of the firm’s continued investment in the city.
