Leading business advisory and chartered accountancy firm Johnston Carmichael has strengthened its team in Perth through the appointment of new Tax Manager, Senga Prior.

Before joining Johnston Carmichael, Senga was with Bell & Company for 17 years, where she specialised in advising owner managed businesses and private clients, with a particular focus on the agricultural sector.

Senga is the Scottish representative volunteer member of the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) Technical Steering Group and is responsible for contributing to ATT responses to HMRC consultations including Scottish Taxpayer Status, Making Tax Digital and the abolition of Class 2 NIC.

Senga was also a major contributor to the ATT response to the consultation on the Extension of Farmers Averaging.

Euan McLeod, Partner at Johnston Carmichael’s Perth office said: “Senga is a highly experienced and ambitious tax expert and we’re delighted to have her join our team in Perth. Her specialist insights within the agricultural sector are invaluable and she is extremely well regarded within the local community. Senga’s appointment strengthens the team further following Ryan Diplexcito’s promotion to Partner in June.”
