MHA Henderson Loggie has appointed Dawn MacDougall as tax director.
She joins from EY where latterly she was head of tax in their Inverness office and focused on supporting owner-managed businesses and entrepreneurs throughout the UK, with complex tax issues.
Ms MacDougall has over thirty years’ tax experience, qualifying with EY in 1991 before joining investment house Martin Currie, and then Scottish Water in managerial roles. She re-joined EY in 2008 after an eight-year stint at mid-tier accountancy firm Johnston Carmichael.
Based in Edinburgh and Inverness, Ms MacDougall will work across all of MHA Henderson Loggie’s offices in Scotland and will focus on furthering the tax team’s reputation as a centre of excellence for owner managed business taxation.
She said: “I am excited about the future and am delighted to be joining a great team at a firm renowned for its people culture. MHA Henderson Loggie is undoubtedly one of the leading mid-tier firms in Scotland with interesting clients and I’m looking forward to being able to collaborate with the other service lines within the firm and to focus on providing clients with the help they need at each stage of their business lifecycle.
“I’m pleased to make the move at such an interesting time. As owner managed businesses recover from the COVID pandemic, they are seeking to make changes to their business structure and current working practices. Building on our reputation as a centre of excellence for the provision of services for owner managed businesses, there is significant scope for the tax team to work with businesses across Scotland and to help them achieve their goals.”
Kimberley Thomson, partner and head of tax, added: “I’m delighted to welcome Dawn to the team. Her appointment signals a new period of growth in tax services at MHA Henderson Loggie, and she brings with her a wealth of professional experience and strong commercial acumen.
“The pandemic has created many challenges and opportunities for all types of business and Dawn’s market focus and insight will be invaluable as we work with our colleagues across all disciplines to provide the services and advice needed by clients who are steering their way through these difficult times.”
