Our people

  • Mark Baycroft


    Mark is a Director in our Business Tax team and focuses on Owner Managed Businesses (OMBs), with a particular interest in reorganisations, reconstructions and property taxes.

    Mark has spent his career of over 20 years advising OMBs and their shareholders and directors. He also enjoys creative thinking around challenging technical problems in all areas of tax, particularly where multiple taxes are involved, and does not restrict himself to purely business/corporate or personal taxes. 

    Mark’s predominant areas of specialism include advising OMBs, corporate reorganisations and reconstructions, IHT and CGT issues for corporate structures, property taxes (including SDLT and ATED), and interaction between tax and accounting.

    Mark is a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor, a past Chair of the South London & Surrey branch of the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT), and often attends (and occasionally chairs) the Croydon & Bromley Tax Discussion Groups.

    In his spare time, Mark enjoys countryside walks, cooking and a rekindled passion for Lego models.
