RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – recently announced that Duncan Stocks has joined the firm as leader of its value-added tax (VAT) national specialty service line, an important service for RSM’s globally active clients. Stocks joins RSM US from fellow member firm RSM UK, and will be based in the firm’s Chicago office.

“We are excited to welcome Duncan to the RSM US team,” said Jerry Martin, national leader of international tax services at RSM. “Enhancing and expanding our global VAT practice in the US means that our clients will benefit from our expanded consulting capabilities that will help their businesses succeed. With Duncan joining us from our fellow RSM UK member firm, he will be able to ‘hit the ground running’ and continue to build and strengthen relationships with our clients around the globe.”

Stocks has more than 25 years of global VAT consulting experience, and most recently led one of RSM UK’s VAT teams. In his new role, Stocks and the VAT team will pursue global opportunities along four main avenues, including VAT efficient supply chains, enterprise resource planning (ERP) system reviews and configurations, global compliance and corporate transactions.

Stocks attained professional qualifications with the Chartered Institute of Taxation, the UK’s principal body for tax professionals.
