Leading business and financial adviser Grant Thornton UK LLP continues the growth of its tax practice with the appointment of Kirsty Rockall as its new Head of Transfer Pricing. In her new role, she will set and lead the strategy for Grant Thornton’s national transfer pricing team across the UK.

Kirsty joins the firm with over 20 years’ experience working in transfer pricing, both in the UK and internationally, advising a range of clients from start-ups through to FTSE 100 businesses.

Kirsty is passionate about working with clients to transform how they approach transfer pricing, helping them address changes in the landscape and identify the challenges and opportunities presented by advances in global tax authority coordination and technology.

Commenting on her appointment, Kirsty said:

“Shifts in the geopolitical landscape have thrust transfer pricing into the limelight, with greater focus on transparency, responsible tax and reputation, in addition to increasing compliance obligations as tax authorities compete for revenues on a global stage. I'm thrilled to have started my role at Grant Thornton and to be working closely with the team to help our clients successfully navigate through those choppy tax waters.”

Karen Campbell-Williams, head of tax, Grant Thornton UK LLP, added:

“This is an exciting time for our tax business as we invest in our people, grow our business and support our clients as they operate in increasingly complex environments both nationally and globally. Kirsty brings to the team her significant experience of designing and implementing transfer pricing policies for businesses as they grow, expand and develop their operations and international presence and I’m delighted to welcome her to Grant Thornton.”
