BDO expands Expat team with Midlands hire

Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO LLP has strengthened its Expat team with the appointment of Mark Allsopp as Associate Director.

Mark is an experienced dual qualified UK/US tax advisor with over 14 years’ experience in expatriate areas, including inbound/outbound advisory US to UK and UK to US, UK/US resident considerations, and streamlined filing for non-compliant US individuals. 

At BDO, he will primarily be responsible for assisting US individuals who are moving to, or who are based in the UK, to navigate the complexities of both the UK and US tax systems, allowing the individual to be tax efficient in both countries.

Mark will be based at BDO’s new Nottingham city centre office, but will be part of the firm’s North Region Expat team.

Ben Tarry, Tax Partner in the Midlands, said:

“Mark is a fantastic addition to our Expat team – not just in the Midlands, but across the North region too.

“His appointment marks an exciting opportunity for the firm, as we look to unlock significant potential in the regional markets. Mark’s experience in areas such as expatriation of US individuals and relevant tax compliance, will be vital in helping us to build our presence outside of London.”

Currently, there is an opportunity for US residents based in the UK to utilise the Streamlined Foreign Offshore Procedures, in order to become compliant with their US tax obligations. However, the window to take advantage of this ‘amnesty’ will be closed in the future.

Mark commented:

“Navigating complex dual tax systems can be a daunting and complicated process for any US individual based in the UK – particularly for those who establish they are ‘accidental Americans’ and need to meet their obligation to be compliant with US tax. We’re looking to assist those who face these complexities and help them to navigate this process knowing they are in safe hands throughout.”

He added:

“I’m delighted to be joining an ambitious and enthusiastic team, as we look to enhance our US personal tax and Expat offering, both here in the Midlands and across other key UK regions.”
