Chiene + Tait appoints David Philp as head of R&D tax
Accountants Chiene + Tait (C+T) have promoted Dave Philp into the new role of head of R&D tax.
Mr Philp, based at the firm’s main office in Edinburgh, joined C+T in 2012 and has worked for years in its entrepreneurial tax team.
He has worked with a broad range of clients supporting them on R&D tax relief applications and other forms of innovation-focused tax reliefs.
Neil Norman, entrepreneurial tax partner at C+T, said: “Dave has established a proven track record in supporting clients on R&D tax relief claims and has the ideal knowledge and experience for this new role. Leading a burgeoning team, he is developing our market rapidly through referrals received from his client base.
“We believe there are opportunities to develop this aspect of our business as we have seen significant growth in demand for R&D tax relief applications. Brexit could also provide further scope for the government to expand innovation-focused reliefs across the UK to help enhance competitiveness.”
