“The tax environment has never been more complex for these organisations, and Deloitte’s approach to providing the very best tax advisory services, is entirely aligned to my personal enthusiasm and commitment to working in this sector.”

Ben Powell, head of public sector tax at Deloitte, said: “Paul is a terrific addition to our partnership – his knowledge and insight in the public sector and charities space is unrivalled, and his leadership in our tax services will enable us to provide ever greater support to housing associations, universities, charities and the wider public sector.”
