James Pratt, Tax Partner

James is a partner in BDO’s private equity and M&A tax team. He advises private equity funds and private equity and venture capital backed companies on the full range of their tax issues.

These issues include: structuring and diligence in relation to acquisitions, disposals (including IPOs) and refinancing; structuring new PE funds; tax strategy for PE funds; and navigating the increased complexity that being owned by a PE/VC fund gives an investee company’s ongoing tax position.

James works with a variety of UK mid-market private equity houses and their portfolio groups and also has experience of US PE funds investing into the UK.

BDO’s PE and M&A tax team focuses on providing the UK’s mid-market private equity houses with joined up thinking on tax covering the full spectrum of tax issues from PE executive to portfolio company and from fund formation to investment exit.
