Shorts hires Lynee Gill as Senior VAT Manager

1st November 2021

Shorts Chartered Accountants is delighted to announce the appointment of Lynne Gill as Senior VAT Manager.

An indirect tax specialist with over 35 years’ experience, Lynne joined the Shorts Tax Planning Team at the start of October 2021.

Lynne’s previous roles have included 27 years at HMRC, where she worked as a VAT inspector dealing primarily with small and medium enterprises, before later moving on to large national businesses.

Following her time at HMRC, Lynne worked for a large, independent regional accountancy firm, before working for a company providing specialist VAT advice and VAT compliance services to the healthcare sector.

Scott Burkinshaw, Tax Partner at Shorts, said:

'We're delighted to welcome a highly experienced specialist such as Lynne on board. VAT is a tax that pops up everywhere, often without people realising, so bolstering our VAT advisory capacity is very important to enable us to continue to offer our clients high quality, comprehensive tax advice.'

Speaking about her appointment, Lynne said:

‘I am delighted to be joining one of the most reputable and ambitious Chartered Accountancy firms in the region, and very excited to be working with such a talented and dedicated team. I'm looking forward to bringing my experience and knowledge of VAT to a tax team which has proved to be highly effective in helping regional businesses reach their goals.’

This appointment will further strengthen Shorts’ reputation for excellence in tax planning and advice, and will solidify the firm’s position as a regional leader in all things VAT.
