‘The idea behind the team is to be the support person for the client,’ says James Walker, the head of private clients at Buzzacott. ‘It’s all about their taxes, so we are trying to provide a really good compliance service, because that is how we get to know our clients really well.’ Brought up in Zambia and Kenya, Walker now manages various complex offshore trusts, as well as providing tax planning services for settlor beneficiaries on their trusts. Since 2014 ‘we’ve changed a lot of the things we do, so now we’re much more transparent,’ he adds. Walker notes that his clients are unfazed by the non-dom rules uncertainty, but then perhaps that’s how it should be: ‘We are supposed to be a filter for them,’ he explains.
