Evelyn Partners strengthens Bristol professional services team with VAT director appointment

Evelyn Partners, the leading integrated wealth management and professional services group, is pleased to announce the appointment of Owen Burn as a VAT director in its Bristol office

He joins Evelyn Partners from PwC where he spent more than 14 years as a tax adviser  assisting organisations with VAT and indirect taxes. Prior to that he worked for HM Revenue & Customs as a customs officer.

Sunil Parmar, Partner and Head of Indirect Tax at Evelyn Partners commented:

“We are delighted to welcome Owen to Evelyn Partners as a VAT director.  Owen brings broad experience of assisting clients in all sectors with complex VAT issues and strong market presence in the South West and Wales region. This will further increase our regional presence in indirect tax and add to our expanding offering in VAT, customs duties and environmental taxes.”

Owen added: “I am hugely impressed with Evelyn Partners’ ambitious growth plans and entrepreneurial spirit. The energy and passion across the entire firm is what first attracted me to leave the ‘Big 4’ and I’m excited to be back partnering with the exciting and diverse mix of businesses in the South West and Wales region.”
