It’s been a year of navigating opportunity within uncertainty for James Hender, a nominee for our 2018 Private Client Accountant of the Year award, who heads up Saffery Champness’s excellent private wealth team. ‘We’ve been particularly busy with revenue work and with other big tax changes,’ he tells Spear’s. Many of his HNW clients have started their own businesses, where he works closely with them on a range of commercial issues. Hender is pragmatic on Brexit. ‘People will either see it as an opportunity or a threat to the country,’ he says, pointing to potential changes to the inheritance tax regime ‘no matter what government is in power’.
