The EY Central Belt Tax team has ambitious plans for the coming years and we are setting out a clear message that we‘re building a team for the future. We want the right people on board to achieve these growth objectives. Our tax team is already growing rapidly, reflecting strong activity levels and the ambition and investment EY is making.

Through our Entrepreneur of the Year programme we have also created opportunities to work with entrepreneurs around strategy, growth, export, exit readiness, tax planning and structuring, and management incentives.
