C+T Expands Inverness Office with new Director Appointment

Accountancy firm Chiene + Tait (C+T) has expanded its Inverness office with the recruitment of Shona Fraser, Business Support Director. She joins from the Inverness office of ‘Big 4’ firm, EY.

This latest appointment follows business expansion and will broaden C+T’s service offering in Inverness, where it opened its premises in November. Shona brings with her many years of experience to the role and specialises in providing accounts and business support services to SMEs, medical and other professional partnerships and rural businesses.

Commenting on her new role, Shona Fraser said: “I am very excited about joining Chiene + Tait and looking forward to taking a hands-on role to support our clients, and build our presence in the area. With a number of positive business growth opportunities, including the recently announced Inverness and Highland City Region Deal, our firm is in the perfect position to support the continued growth of the area at this exciting time.”

C+T’s Head of Tax, Helen Mackenzie, said: “We are delighted to welcome Shona to the team, joining Director of Tax Jackie Fraser. Recruiting another Director to our Inverness office demonstrates a clear and strong commitment to the area. Being from the Highlands, we all understand the unique pressures facing local businesses. Our Inverness client base has grown significantly since our office opened late last year and we are excited to see the continued growth of our offering to businesses and individuals. ”

The Inverness operation is supported by colleagues at C+T’s head office in Edinburgh, including their highly experienced private client team and their Scottish Accountancy Award-winning entrepreneurial tax team, both of which already work with many clients in the Highlands and Islands.
