Max completed an accountancy and finance degree in 2011, before moving into the world of personal taxation, where he spent a number of years working with UK expats on various aspects of their tax affairs at the Big 4 accountancy firm EY where he was trained and qualified as a member of the Association of Taxation Technicians.
After leaving EY, Max moved onto work at The Fry Group where he was the assistant manager of the UK Tax team. While at Frys he continued to specialise in the tax affairs of UK expats living and working overseas.
Max is particularly focused on delivering a high quality and personalised service by ensuring he is always on hand to assist clients when needed. He has continued to add to his repertoire of professional knowledge and is currently studying for the prestigious Chartered Tax Adviser qualification.
Outside of work, Max enjoys playing football and regularly attends the matches of the widely recognised greatest football team Plymouth Argyle.
Scott Barlow built his career in tax on the back of stints at EY and The Fry Group spanning close to a decade, dealing with the tax affairs of individuals ranging from local sole traders, lottery winners and expats to some of the highest earners in the country. He has had a particular focus more recently on tax compliance and planning for people working or returning from the far and middle East.
He honed his skills at EY, becoming ATT qualified in the process before becoming an integral member of the international tax team at The Fry Group. Given the opportunity to mould a tax company of his own, he co-founded ATC Tax with the aim of providing a personalised service tailored to the needs of each individual client.
Scott has a BSc (hons) in Mathematics from University of Birmingham.
A keen traveller, his hobbies include outdoor tennis (weather permitting), football and running.
James has been working in the taxation industry for 15 years based in the south west of England and is a member of the Association of Taxation Technicians having qualified in 2006. He has provided tax compliance and planning advice to a wide variety of clients, UK and non-UK residents, self-employed and high net worth individuals. Prior to co-founding ATC Tax, James worked for 3 years at The Fry Group primarily handling the UK tax requirements for clients of the financial planning arm. Before that, James worked for 9 years in two stints at EY, where he was trained, and at PKF Francis Clark, one of the larger regional accountancy firms in the UK. It was at EY that James met his fellow ATC Tax co-founders and vowed that they would some day establish their own business.
Outside of work, James enjoys playing tennis at a very low level, learning Spanish at an even lower level and supporting his hometown club AFC Wimbledon.
