Areas of Expertise 

What our clients say

Since my introduction to Zoe and her Team at Mazars around six years ago they have completed numerous complex tax guidance projects for our group of companies. Without exception, they have not only provided sound structured advise but also sensible guidance and consideration of the wider picture. Their approach and professionalism are first-class and throughout the process make you feel like you have the experts firmly on your team. I would recommend Mazars, not only for the leverage their advice carries but also the sense of security and support they impart throughout the experience. Zoe is without a doubt my favourite Tax expert!

Zoe Davies and her team have helped me prepare my yearly Tax return over the last 10+ years.  In addition, they have been instrumental in providing advices of UK tax implications for investments I made in the UK, considering my status of resident non-domiciled in the UK and situation of business owner.  They are clearly experts in this field. The service was always provided with great professionalism and in a timely manner.  I particularly appreciated the attention to details and the fact that they know clearly my file and situation.  Thanks also to them for explaining in simple terms complex Tax concepts I am not always familiar with.

As the operations manager of two international artists we often have to set up and monitor complex arrangements that cannot conflict with each other in both the legal and tax arenas in many jurisdictions. Zoe and Julia handle these with ease and I feel very comfortable in their timely responses as both accurate and pragmatic.

I have been a client of Zoe and her Team for the last twelve years and of Mazars for a further 12 years before that. The service I receive from Zoe and her team is terrific - and has been throughout the relationship. My financial affairs are not entirely straightforward, largely because I established, and have been funding for the past 17 years, an important research group at the London School of Economics (“The Paul Woolley Centre for the Study of Capital Market Dysfunctionality”), plus other donations. Zoe’s advice has been critical as she has helped me navigate the extended period when ultra-low interest rates meant I had to juggle the phasing of the annual donations to achieve tax efficiency. Zoe and her team deal effectively and promptly with my affairs and any queries. No less important is that it is always a great pleasure to deal with Zoe.

Mazars, through Zoe have helped us navigate two very complex transactions in the last couple of years and the service provided has been excellent in both cases. By delivering expert advice in a clear and simple way, always listening and explaining in simple terms and with a smile too, they have made Mazars our only considered advisors. The really good thing about Zoe is the calmness and clarity of explanation, and that is what we actually need.
