KPMG Poaches Someone From Grant Thornton and Issues a Press Release, Part III

There probably aren’t too many accountants who can say they’ve worked as head of tax at both Grant Thornton and KPMG in Scotland, but if such a club exists, Vishal Chopra is its newest member.

Several news outlets in the U.K. have reported on Chopra’s recent move from GT to the House of Klynveld, including which published the following info taken from a KPMG release:

Chopra, a corporate tax specialist, will lead a team of 90 tax professionals operating across the firm’s offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. …

With a background of working with private businesses, … Chopra succeeds Alan Turner, who has led the Scottish tax practice for the last three years, and has been promoted to lead the firm’s corporate tax and legal services practice across the UK.

Turner, an international tax specialist who has been with the firm for 15 years, will lead a team of 450 tax professionals and lawyers, providing services to the firm’s largest multinational and listed clients.

As part of his new role, he will continue to work with large corporate clients in Scotland.

Chopra took to LinkedIn last week to announce his new digs … you know, once the new U.K. coronavirus lockdown ends:

Chopra spent nearly nine years at Grant Thornton, as a tax director and then as a tax partner who led the firm’s tax practice in Scotland, according to his LinkedIn profile.

He also has previous Big 4 experience: Chopra started his career at PwC in 2002 where he worked for more than nine years, including as a tax manager and tax senior manager, before going to GT in 2012.
