Mark Stemp

Partner, Private Clients
London & Thames Valley

I provide tax advice to individuals to help them to better understand and manage their tax. Key to my approach is to try to keep things straightforward and to explain complex things in a simple way.

I advise on a number of taxes including income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax. I work closely with financial advisors to get the right balance between tax and investment advice.

I started my tax career in 1996 by beginning a taxation degree and I became a qualified Chartered Tax Advisor in 2002. I joined Crowe LLP in 2012 to lead their Thames Valley Private Client tax service and became a partner on 1 April 2017. Notable events in my career have been my inclusion in Who's Who for two years running and I have been recognised by e-private client as a "top 35, under 35."
