Hegarty Solicitors expands range of service with appointment of tax specialist

May 10, 2022

Peterborough, Stamford and Oakham law firm Hegarty Solicitors have announced the appointment of a tax specialist to further broaden the range of services they offer to clients.

Tom Moore, a Chartered Tax Advisor, who specialises in private client tax, joined the firm this month and brings with him a wealth of tax planning experience for both private and corporate clients.

Tom is a member of the Association of Taxation Technicians and the Chartered Institute of Taxation, and prior to joining Hegarty Solicitors has provided accountancy and tax advice at local and national accountancy firms for the past 15 years.

Greg Baker, Partner and Head of Wills, Trusts & Probate services at Hegarty Solicitors, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Tom to the team. Tom’s appointment is a valuable addition to the firm and will enhance the range of services we are able to offer clients, with a bespoke tax offering to compliment the services our Trusts & Probate team already provide.

“Tom will offer advice to clients regarding Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax, completion of Estate, Trust & Personal Tax Returns and registration of Trusts & Estates on HMRC’s Trusts Register. This means that when our clients require tax planning advice, we can offer this advice in-house, making the process easier and more straightforward for clients and ensuring they receive the highest standards of service that we pride ourselves on at Hegarty Solicitors.

“Tom will also provide tax advice to clients on a range of other matters, such as Capital Gains Tax advice and reporting on sales of residential and commercial properties, advice for those who have a portfolio of let residential properties when considering creating a company, Stamp Duty Land Tax advice for residential and commercial property clients and advice for corporate clients regarding tax implications in commercial transactions.”

Tom said: “I am delighted to join Hegarty Solicitors to expand the range of services on offer to clients. Tax is an important consideration for both individuals and businesses, and I look forward to assisting and advising clients on organising their affairs the most tax-efficient way.”
