Profile

Sarah Stenton

Description

Spear's Review

‘For HNWs, instructing an adviser on a tax investigation is a bit like visiting the doctor,’ says Sarah Stenton. ‘No-one wants to go until you really have to – and you have to work out where you’ll get the best service possible.’ So what makes her firm, Stewarts, a good bet? ‘What sets us apart is our collective experience,’ she says. ‘Most complex investigations need both tax and legal input, so having chartered tax advisers, ex-HMRC inspectors and both lawyers and barristers means we can advise from all angles.’

Stenton’s career embodies that diverse approach. Having trained at the Inland Revenue (as it was then called), she spent five years in BDO’s tax dispute department before joining Stewarts in April 2019 as a tax director.

Adviser Profile

Sarah Stenton is tax director at Stewarts, where she established the tax investigation team in April 2019.

Sarah has an enviable reputation in the field of tax dispute resolution, established over her 17 year career advising across the full spectrum of taxes. Sarah is a Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA), having previously trained at what was then the Inland Revenue.

She specialises in the resolution of tax enquiries and disputes, predominantly for high net worth and high profile individuals. Her work includes complex technical investigations (COP8), cases involving suspected tax fraud (COP9), voluntary disclosures to HMRC, and settlement of individual and corporate participation in marketed tax avoidance schemes.
