Devon and Exeter-based chartered accountancy firm Simpkins Edwards has bolstered the strength and capability of its senior tax and healthcare teams with the appointment of David Williams Bsc ACA CTA, formerly healthcare associate at Darnells, as a Tax Consultant.

David joins the firm’s tax team led by Tax Partner Chris Bowker.  David will also work closely with the firm’s Healthcare specialist team headed by Partners Sebastian Beard and Mark Simic.

David has particular expertise in personal tax, assisting clients with tax compliance, inheritance tax, capital gains, income tax, succession planning, preparation of tax returns and guidance related to property portfolios.

Commenting on David’s appointment, Lynn Woodward, Senior Partner at Simpkins Edwards, said: “David is a well-respected specialist in tax planning and will add significantly to the firm’s breadth of knowledge and expertise.  His first-hand work with clients in the healthcare sector is a particular fillip as the firm has built on its portfolio of healthcare clients in recent years.”
