Andersen Global adds fourth UK firm

Andersen Global, the international association of tax specialist firms set up by former Arthur Andersen staffers, has added a fourth UK firm, announcing a collaboration with Claritas Tax Ltd, a tax advisory and compliance services firm based in Birmingham

The move follows three earlier collaborations with London-based firms Mark Davies & Associates, RBCVAT Ltd and Milestone International Tax Partners.

Mark Vorsatz, Andersen Global chairman and Andersen Tax CEO, said: ‘Adding a sought-after firm like Claritas is not only a logical extension for Andersen Global, but it broadens our offering in the UK.

‘Their practice focuses on corporation tax, R&D tax reliefs, mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital in addition to serving individuals.

‘Iain Wright and his team enhance our already robust core competences in the UK, a critical market for our clients, and we look forward to working with Claritas on a number of upcoming corporate opportunities.’

Founded in 2012, Claritas Tax Limited is an advisory led business that provides a full range of tax advisory and compliance services to entrepreneurial privately owned, venture capital and private equity owned businesses, listed companies and their stakeholders.

Iain Wright, Claritas managing director, said: ‘While a number of my colleagues and I are alumni of the Big Four, the opportunity to widen the scope of our expertise makes Andersen Global a natural fit.

‘After having discussions with Mark over the last six months, I recognized that we share a common commitment to providing best-in-class, tailored service to clients in all facets of their tax affairs.’

Andersen Global is an international association of legally separate, independent member firms comprised of tax and legal professionals around the world. Established in 2013 by US member firm Andersen Tax, Andersen Global now has nearly 4,000 professionals worldwide and a presence in over 125 locations through its member firms and collaborating firms.
