International professional services firm KPMG has installed Mike Linter as the Global Head of Private Enterprise Tax and Legal. Yorkshire based Linter takes the role having been a Partner with KPMG for 20 years.

Personal tax law is complex and rules can change quickly. KPMG Private Enterprise advisors work with clients to assess the tax rules and tax issues that affect, or may affect, personal and family taxes, so that they can better manage their overall tax burden while remaining compliant with all tax laws.

KPMG has strengthened its offering to privately-owned businesses with the appointment of a Partner to lead its Global Tax and Legal Private Enterprise business. Yorkshire based joined KPMG in 1994, and since then he has worked to support businesses in the region with their expansion plans, both at home and abroad.

Highlighted the key role of fast-growth businesses in engineering a post-Covid-19 economic recovery, Linter said, “It is essential that Private Enterprise businesses have a voice in the debate around how private businesses can grow, given how critical this will be in driving economic growth in towns and cities across the Yorkshire region and the UK more widely. Supporting entrepreneurs and fast-growth businesses is the backbone of KPMG and part of our heritage.”

Having now been a Partner with KPMG for 20 years, Linter has developed a particular interest in the corporate strategies adopted by entrepreneurial businesses and will work with KPMG’s Private Enterprise teams internationally to share best practice for the benefit of clients across the globe. In his new role, he will develop KPMG Private Enterprise’s global tax and legal strategy, exploring tax strategies and solutions that can be tailored for privately-owned companies.

A key part of this will include collaborating with KPMG’s international tax team, understanding what is working internationally and across key trade corridors, and helping businesses in the UK implement their growth strategies. Insights he will help to provide will underpin the advice KPMG’s multidiscipline teams offer to firms navigating complex tax landscapes to deliver efficiency and value, ultimately supporting their expansion ambitions.
