Independent tax advice

Sound tax back-up is essential to any practice. We can identify and put you in touch with an independent consultant who can best assist you with advice ranging from a quick telephone call to a full consultation.

Experts include

  • Edinburgh - Colin Lamb, email or phone 0131 441 6141
  • Linlithgow - Seonaid Anderson, email or phone 0150 684 2874

Note: We undertake to identify the best source of advice for you if, for any reason, either consultant cannot help. CA Practitioner Service only provides the initial contact and the Institute can, therefore, accept no liability for any advice given. Billing will be direct from the adviser to you.
