With a steady stream of people moving to Australia from England and vice versa, Cambridge tax specialist websters has opened new offices in Sydney.
The office will advise individuals and businesses migrating either way on the sometimes complex tax and financial issues that may affect them and their businesses.
The venture is being headed by Joanne Lamberth, one of websters’ senior tax consultants, who was originally based in Cambridge. She will be assisted by Dale Winckel, who will focus on business development.
websters chose the North Shore, Sydney for its new business as it is a primarily residential area with a high ratio of expat home owners. But with a registered office in the central business district of Sydney, other areas of the city remain within reach.
Chief executive, Andrew Webster said: “The UK practice has been advising Australian clients from our Cambridge base for the last 15 years. During the last year, Joanne Lamberth, one of our senior tax consultants, has worked hard to develop this new office and business in Australia.
“Joanne migrated to Australia and chose the North Shore of Sydney as her new family home, so is well versed in the opportunities and issues that UK ‘expats’ will experience. She and Dale will be working alongside our experienced international tax team in Cambridge.
“We already use this approach very successfully with our office in France. To extend the business and open our first office outside Europe is a really exciting development for websters.”
