Connect with John

John is a very experienced tax and executive remuneration specialist who has extensive experience of international tax and social security matters affecting employees on overseas assignment.

He has led the client service teams on major global expatriate engagements in the International Assignment practices within the “Big 4” accountancy firms. In that time, John has worked with a very wide and varied corporate client base with very different expatriate populations, dealing with the personal UK and US compliance of those expatriates as well as the corporate issues such as the design, implementation and application of assignment and tax equalisation policies.

John has also held senior positions within the tax and HR departments of major global companies with responsibility for devising and developing tax-effective remuneration plans, such as dual contracts, year-end bonuses and deferred remuneration arrangements throughout Europe for local staff as well as expatriate employees. He has also been responsible for the implementation process of such plans and the management of corporate risk in relation to cost and reputation; as such, he has been the principal liaison person on income and social security matters for these organisations with tax authorities in the UK and many other European jurisdictions.

John also has extensive experience of advising high profile clients on current trends and practices in the area of executive compensation, especially with regard to the design and implementation of annual and long term incentive plans and compensation structures that encourage a performance-based culture and maximise client companies’ ability to recruit, reward and retain key individuals.
