Case Studies


We were introduced to an early stage E&P company and had the opportunity to meet the management team while they were evaluating acquisition opportunities. We subsequently carried out due diligence on a potential African acquisition, identifying a number of issues around transfers in ownership.


We were approached by an overseas national oil company because their existing outsourced accounting providers had limited E&P knowledge and had made some unusual requests for information from Operators. This company had no personnel based in the UK.


A UK energy company requiring tax compliance advice for their Global workforce under a modified arrangement including a compliant approach to payroll. Review of the real cost of global mobility and the global tax policy.


We were approached by an established E&P operator with assets and interests in throughout Europe and Africa to assist them with their financial reporting obligations and corporation tax compliance together with other tax issues. We effectively became the group’s in-house tax function to guide them in all aspects of taxation, both UK and overseas. We played a key role in getting their financial statements signed off, have prepared their corporation tax returns. We are assisting them in developing a wider tax strategy for the group as a whole, whilst at the same time regularising historic issues and weaknesses with internal policies and procedures.
