Lindsay has relocated from the accountancy giant’s mid-market mergers and acquisitions (M&A) tax team in London to its Edinburgh office, where she will work across the Central Belt to boost its private capital and M&A presence.

She will be responsible for advising owner-managed and private equity-backed clients, with a focus on supporting these through growth including providing due diligence and tax structuring support on transactions and maximising tax opportunities.

Lindsay said: “I started my career in my home town of Edinburgh so it feels right to return. M&A activity has been steadily increasing in Scotland over recent years, and my experience working with such a diverse client base in London should provide some valuable insight and support to growth-hungry businesses throughout the country.”

KPMG’s head of tax in Scotland, Alan Turner, added: “Rianne’s return to Edinburgh reinforces KPMG’s commitment to grow our presence and service offering throughout Scotland.

“Given the significance of privately-held business to Scotland’s economy, it is important we are able to support our private capital clients throughout their lifecycle. This is against a backdrop of increasing complexity of the tax rules, resulting in strong market demand for our services.”
