We are pleased to announce that Jennie Brown, a well-respected and inspiring tax professional, has joined the firm as a Tax Partner.
Jennie joins us with over 15 years’ experience gained from working in large practice and regional firms. Jennie is a Chartered Tax Adviser who has a wealth of experience guiding individuals and business owners through the maze of tax legislation, ensuring they have a clear plan in place to reach their goals and effectively manage their tax affairs along the way.
Jennie's focus is on personal taxes and she has particular specialisms in Inheritance Tax and Wealth Protection Planning, IR35 and workforce assessments, Property Planning; considering all appropriate structures and Residence and Domicile. She has also gained a reputation for working with colleagues within the legal profession on advising on the tax treatment and implications relating to matrimonial disputes, divorce and the separation of couples.
Commenting on Jennie’s appointment, Paul Tutin, Streets’ Chairman and Managing Partner, said: “We are delighted that Jennie has joined us as a Partner. Her appointment is an important part of the development of our firm’s tax expertise and resource.
“Jennie joins a practice wide tax team which includes 10 dedicated tax partners and over 25 technical staff. In her new role she will focus on looking after the needs of existing and new clients from across the East of England and in particular our offices in Peterborough, Northamptonshire and Bedford.
“With a specialism for advising on the tax implications relating to IR35 and workforce assessment, her appointment is especially well timed with the introduction of changes to off payroll working from 6th April. She will be a great asset to us when it comes to advising clients, especially contractors working through a personal service company, recruitment agencies, as well as large and medium sized business clients on the impact of the changes.
When asked about her new role, Jennie commented: “Becoming a partner with Streets is a real milestone for me personally and professionally and I am hugely excited about the opportunity that lies ahead. Tax is a key area of growth within our profession, many areas will continue to be automated and of course efficiencies can and should always be explored.
"However, when dealing with the complexities of the tax legislation, face to face meetings and the importance of strong client relationships will not disappear. This hands-on approach with clients is something I relish and I look forward to being able to contribute towards the firm’s future plans and successes.
“Along with my fellow partners I look forward to playing an instrumental part in promoting the firm in Peterborough and Bedford, and to the development of our office in Northampton.”
