Glasgow-based Greg McNally has been promoted to VAT Partner and will provide specialist VAT and Indirect Tax advice to clients and intermediaries across Scotland.

Allan Bird is a Customs International Trade specialist and joins Campbell Dallas as a Manager from HMRC where he dealt with VAT compliance and legislation on numerous complex cross-border transactions. He has also worked across the whisky, oil and gas, and aircraft sectors providing risk assessments, compliance reviews, AEO certification and international trade support.

Commenting on the appointments, Veronica Donnelly, Head of VAT with Campbell Dallas said: “Greg is a highly skilled and experienced VAT and Indirect Tax practitioner with a strong commercial focus. He is a major asset to our growing client base, and I am delighted to confirm his promotion to Partner.

“Allan’s detailed knowledge of Customs compliance will bring a new dimension to our business and will be of considerable benefit to clients engaged in or planning to export. Post-Brexit, the export/import business will be much more complicated, and costly mistakes will be much more probable. Both Greg and Allan will help clients navigate VAT legislation, identify efficiencies in the transactional nature of the VAT supply chain, and generally help ensure our clients are compliant with the law.”
