EY has appointed Emma Hosking-Williams as director in its private client and trust team in the Channel Islands.

As member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CTA) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ACA), she began her career as a forensic accountant at HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). Mrs Hosking-Williams joined EY’s London office in 2008 and has moved to the Channel Islands to lead the pan-island private client and trust team. She is particularly experienced in providing advice on the UK taxation of offshore trust and company structures, as well as the taxation of non-UK domiciled individuals and international pension schemes.

Mrs Hosking-Williams will be focusing on growing the firm’s service offerings for high net worth individuals, family businesses, large multinationals and trust and corporate service providers.

“I am excited to join EY’s Channel Islands tax team and continue to drive the successful trust and private client practice. I am also looking forward to further developing its advisory tax services to specifically support clients with international pension plans, employee benefit trusts and employer financed retirement benefit schemes.” said Mrs Hosking-Williams.

Wendy Martin, EY’s Partner and head of tax in the Channel Islands, said: “I am delighted to welcome Emma to the Channel Islands tax team. Emma’s experience and expertise will be a huge asset to our team in this period of significant change for the fiduciary industry and private clients with the changes to the non-dom rules in April. Her technical expertise in pensions and employee benefit trusts also significantly strengthens our private client and trust service offerings and complements our existing skill sets."
