New business tax partner joins Newby Castleman

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Jacquelyn Kimber as a business tax partner.

Jacquelyn, who will be based at our Leicester office, was formerly a business tax partner with Accountancy Age Top 10 firm Moore Stephens LLP in London. She has many years’ experience of advising owner managed businesses on their tax affairs. 

Her areas of expertise include business restructuring, for example through demergers, succession planning and the tax efficient extraction of profits.

She also offers specialised guidance on reorganising businesses to maximise tax reliefs such as Business Property Relief and Entrepreneurs’ Relief. 

She has advised a number of companies on the choice and implementation of a wide range of share incentive arrangements, as well as more specialist areas such as dealing with claims under the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Seed EIS.

Jacquelyn has contributed to a number of tax books, including Intellectual Property Law and Taxation (8th Edition) and The Tax Adviser’s Guide to Trusts (5th Edition), and has published several articles in the Chartered Institute of Taxation’s publication, Tax Adviser.  She also sits on the Institute’s Owner Managed Business Technical Sub-Committee. 

Outside of work, Jacquelyn is a keen baker, and is a past winner of her team’s “Bake Off” competition.  She tries to work off the calories by swimming, and clocks up between four and five miles a week.

Jacquelyn said: “I started my professional career in Leicester, before moving to Birmingham and then spending 15 years working in London.  I am delighted to be returning to work in my home city as a partner with Newby Castleman, and I am very much looking forward to bringing my expertise to the firm’s extensive client base.”

Chris Castleman, Managing Partner said: “Jacquelyn’s appointment is an exciting step forward for the business. She brings with her a vast amount of expertise in a diverse range of business tax subjects, along with a conscientious and client-oriented approach. We are confident that she will make a significant contribution to the business in the years ahead.”
