Dominic Lay

Dominic is a Tax Manager specialising in corporate and business taxes. Dominic regularly advises corporates and their shareholders/directors on:

  • Succession planning and owner exit routes for owner managed businesses. Typical solutions which we design and project manage include: sales to employee ownership trusts (EOTs), management buy outs, family buy outs and company share buybacks. Dominic has particular experience in advising on EOT transactions with several live transactions typically on the go at any one time.
  • Business re-organisations or reconstructions, for example to simplify a complex corporate structure, prepare a part of a business for sale, or facilitate the split of a business or group between shareholders – all in a tax neutral manner in most cases.
  • International tax issues such as minimising withholding taxes, minimising double taxation, transfer pricing and advising on the implications of expanding overseas.
  • Large or complex corporation tax compliance, including tax accounting. Dominic has valuable experience as an outsourced UK tax manager for a listed global mineral business. He worked directly with the group tax director supporting global projects, provided the UK tax accounting input for the group accounts and oversaw all aspects of UK tax compliance including large corporate compliance obligations. He also co-ordinated responses to a contentious tax enquiry.

Dominic is a chartered tax advisor, an international tax affiliate of the CIOT, and a chartered accountant. This mixture of knowledge and experience make Dominic a valuable single point of contact for multiple corporate tax issues that commonly arise within large corporate groups.

Dominic graduated from Exeter University with a degree in Accounting and Finance in 2014 and has been working in practice since graduating. He has spent time working in the audit and  corporation tax compliance teams during his training and once qualified as a chartered accountant has specialised in tax advisory.
