Newport-based Kilsby Williams has appointed a new Tax Associate as it continues to consolidate its position as one of the country’s leading independent accountancy firms and business advisors.
Rob Meredith joins the firm from PKF Francis Clark in Bristol. He grew up in South Wales and trained as a Chartered Tax Advisor in Cardiff before spending 12 years with Big Four and Top 12 accountancy firms in London. He is a corporate tax specialist and will be providing tax technical and general business advice to the firm’s diverse range of clients. His appointment is the sixth into the firm’s growing tax team in the past few months.
Rob, who previously played rugby for Cardiff RFC and international age grade rugby for Wales, said: “I was attracted to Kilsby Williams by the opportunity to work for one of South Wales’s biggest independent and most highly respected accountancy firms. I’m really excited to be joining the team at a time when our clients, associates and the wider community need our guidance and assistance more than ever.
“I have led tax compliance teams in the UK and overseas and I specialise in mitigating tax risks and maximising reliefs for my clients. I am also an experienced advisor on restructuring projects and property transactions. I am looking forward to bringing my wealth of experience to the firm, its clients and wider stakeholders, helping the firm to continue to be a trusted adviser to entrepreneurial businesses across South Wales.”
Simon Tee, Managing Partner at Kilsby Williams, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming an Associate of Rob’s calibre to the team. The last few years have seen the company grow at an exciting rate and we are constantly on the look out for new talent, especially potential future leaders for the business.
“With Rob in our tax team, I’m sure that the business will continue to go from strength-to-strength.”
