Overview

Andrew is the Managing Partner of Rawlinson & Hunter LLP. Along with the Firm’s management team, Andrew has responsibility for overseeing the day-to-day operation of the business. The immediate priority is to lead the Firm through the current public health and economic crises, protecting what has been achieved, and preparing the Firm and its people for the future.

Prior to assuming the role of Managing Partner, Andrew served for three years as the Firm’s inaugural Strategy Partner, and led the project to convert the Firm into a limited liability partnership. He has also served as the Marketing Partner for four years, and led the Firm’s successful global re-branding project in 2017.

Andrew is a tax specialist of 30 years’ standing, having built his reputation by utilising an ideas-led approach to secure the best possible tax result for entrepreneurs, businesses, shareholders and employees. He believes that the key to being a valued adviser and leader is by building relationships based on trust, collaboration, expertise and plain-speaking, and by bringing innovative ideas to the table.

In 2015, Andrew created the Firm’s Stamp Duty team which pioneered the critical examination of recent residential property purchases to establish whether the correct amount of stamp duty had been paid. The success of this team inspired a mini industry of competitor firms utilising an identical business model.

After graduating from Cambridge University, Andrew spent 14 years with Deloitte in London before joining the Firm as a partner in 2008. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales and an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Taxation.

Andrew is the author of the history of Rawlinson & Hunter which he researched and wrote during the pandemic lockdown. He hopes to still be around to celebrate the Firm’s 100th anniversary in 2033.
