Anthony joined Grant Thornton Ireland in 2021, moving across from the UK firm, where he had worked since 2017. He heads up the Transfer Pricing Team in Dublin and focuses on helping clients with all aspects of Transfer Pricing across a wide range of sectors and industries. This is a continuation of his previous role the Grant Thornton transfer pricing team in London.

He is an extremely experienced Tax Professional, with a background in a wide variety of aspects of tax work, including Transfer Pricing, International Tax, Corporation Tax, Charities Tax and Diverted Profits Tax.
Having worked both for HMRC and in the profession, he is uniquely qualified to view Transfer Pricing issues from both sides. He can fully understand the clients commercial approach and needs whilst acknowledging the viewpoint of the Tax Authority. This enables him to produce solutions which mitigate the risk of misinterpretation by Revenue or other Authorities

During his time in HMRC, he was an International Tax Specialist, focusing on Thin Capitalisation and Transfer Pricing. He also helped to develop HMRC's internal training programme on all aspects of International taxation.
His work has covered many sectors, including Finance, Food and Beverages, Technology, and Telecommunications. He has worked with some of the largest Multi-National Enterprises in the world but he applies exactly the same rigour in supporting smaller clients with more bespoke needs.
