Shyam Pattani BSc(Hons) CTA

Shyam started his career in tax at a top 30 accountancy practice in the East Midlands working in the personal tax department looking after high net worth individuals, partnerships and trusts.  Having obtained his membership of the Association of Taxation Technicians Shyam moved to a local practice where he became a Tax Senior helping set up the systems and processes for the tax department as well as managing and developing other members of the team.

In January 2011 Shyam decided to give up the number crunching involved with compliance and joined Accountax Consulting where he spent two years defending challenges from HMRC in respect of employment status, IR35, the Construction Industry Scheme and the ever-changing HMRC penalty regime on behalf of his clients as well as representing clients before the First-Tier Tax Tribunal.

Shyam has also gained his membership into the Chartered Institute of Taxation.

Over the years Shyam has developed knowledge of the commercial side of providing advice to clients and the need to adapt advice based on clients’ market base, practices and processes rather than just ‘off-the-shelf’ advice.

Shyam joined us in February 2013 as he had a similar vision of providing accurate commercial advice to clients as his colleagues Matt Boddington and Mark Taylor.  Since joining Shyam has continued to expand his knowledge base into other areas of tax whilst continuing to specialise in employment status, IR35, CIS and penalties.
