  • Beryl Heath

    Beryl Heath

    With over 25 years experience in the sector, Beryl is an authority on taxation and has a particular focus on personal tax clients. Having launched her career with the Inland Revenue and served with the industry’s ‘big four’, she has seen at first hand the changes in the profession – including the introduction of self-assessment.

    Having joined James Milne in 2002, Beryl is based in Aberdeen and when not guiding clients through the complexities of tax matters, she enjoys nothing more than dispelling myths about accountancy by indulging in her passion for Ceroc dancing – a colourful fusion of jive, salsa, ballroom and other styles.
