Robert Solyom - Partner
Robert’s clients are in a wide range of sectors including food manufacturing and energy. One of his specialist areas is advising companies on managing waste, including batteries and electrical products, a service which embraces conducting audits to assess compliance with the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) and Battery Regulations.
Robert advises large corporates on their strategies and also works with privately-owned companies with turnovers of up to £30m, including family businesses.
He is one of a comparatively rare breed...a chartered accountant who is also a qualified chartered tax adviser. As such, he works extensively with Craig Hughes on tax matters.
Enterprise Investment Schemes (EIS), Inheritance Tax (IHT) planning, Research & Development (R&D) tax credits, the Tour Operators Margin Scheme (TOMS) and the Patent Box regime are all areas in which Robert can justly claim significant expertise.The last of these involves a preferential tax regime being offered for profits arising from patented products or processes.
Robert also has a reputation for providing strategic advice and introducing new business opportunities to clients, many of whom have developed their organisations as a result of his initiatives.
After joining Brown Butler in 1980, Robert qualified four years later and became a partner in 1987.
