FTI Consulting hires Richard Baxter as new head of indirect taxation
Richard Baxter has joined FTI Consulting as its new head of indirect tax, moving from the same role at Alvarez & Marsal Taxand UK.
Baxter was head of the UK indirect tax team at Andersen for four years in the late 1990s and early 2000s before moving to Deloitte and working in indirect tax technology and assurance and then spending almost six years at Taxand.
He brings with him more than 25 years’ experience in indirect taxation and compliance in both the public and private sectors in a range of industries, and is experienced in navigating regulatory changes. He has worked with US and the UK multinationals on domestic and international VAT issues and lead cases at what was the VAT Tribunal, the higher courts and the European Court of Justice.
Baxter will advise FTI's clients on commercial VAT solutions, working closely with Marvin Rust, head of the firm’s European tax advisory practice.
