Keith Bouttell is a private client partner at Hardcastle Burton. He qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1996, joining Hardcastle Burton in the same year and was admitted as a partner in 2004.
During his time with the firm Keith qualified as a financial adviser in 1998 and, whilst no longer a practicing adviser himself, he heads up our sister financial services company, Hardcastle Burton Financial Ltd.
His broad client base has a significant agricultural content, but he also deals with accounting and taxation matters for a variety of general commercial clients.
Keith specialises in high level capital taxation advice, including advising on the use and implications of trusts, and completed the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners diploma in 2007. Members of STEP include the most experienced and senior practitioners in the field of trusts and estates, and this qualification recognises Keith’s expertise in this area.
More recently Keith regularly advises on the complex tax issues surrounding strategic and development land, including the use of collaboration structures to facilitate the sharing of planning gains between multiple landowners.
Outside of work Keith is a keen cyclist and can be found most weekends out on the Suffolk roads in ill-fitting lycra. He and his wife have three children, a dog and a cat.
