AWAD is delighted to announce a new Corporate partnership with Rawlinson & Hunter LLP.

Rawlinson & Hunter LLP has been at the forefront of the provision of tax and accounting advice to the art world since its formation almost ninety years ago. It provides a wide range of services in the UK and internationally. Catherine Thompson, a corporate partner and VAT specialist of the firm, has a significant proportion of top London art galleries, dealers, and associated art sector clients that make up her practice.

Catherine and her team recognise that the art world is a complex area when determining the tax, VAT and accounting treatment of transactions. Not many industries face the complexities of consignment arrangements, shared ownership structures and complex agency arrangements together with the international nature of transactions thrown into the mix.

With the level of compliance only going in one direction in the UK for art businesses, as evidenced with the recent introduction of money laundering regulations to the art market, Rawlinson & Hunter is well placed to provide well thought out and practical advice as well as taking away the burden of compliance from the business owners.

Please do reach out to Catherine or a member of Rawlinson & Hunter LLP if they can be of assistance. See our Partner Directory for contact details.
