A Shropshire business man who specialises in personal tax advice has been appointed as a new partner – in a firm that’s based in the USA.

Ian Brander is the latest partner to be promoted at Dyke Yaxley USA – an associate company of Dyke Yaxley Chartered Accountants.

He will be based here in the UK and will lead the UK-USA personal tax department overseeing the majority of the firm’s 350 UK-USA individual clients.

Ian will also manage a client portfolio of US/UK individuals and businesses dealing with complex international tax calculations.

Managing partner of DY USA, Rob Whittall, says Ian was the company’s first employee hired in 2012, and he’s currently a member of the firm’s management committee.

“When I think about the future of the business, I like to imagine being surrounded by the next generation of leaders who are brilliant at what they do, who can communicate effectively, and who are always looking for self-improvement as well as helping their team members succeed,” said Rob.

“Ian has a pragmatic approach and the ability to make tough decisions based on data while keeping the human side in mind. He is a talented colleague who can humanise the client/accountant relationship and who has long-term knowledge of our clients’ businesses.

“I’m honoured to invite him to join the partnership and look forward to many more successful years ahead together.”

Ian says: 

“The past ten years have been such an amazing journey and I am thrilled to be working with such a great group of people on both sides of the Atlantic. I’m looking forward to being a part of DY USA’s future and watching the firm and our team members grow.”

Ian joined Dyke Yaxley Chartered Accountants as an apprentice after leaving college before transferring to Dyke Yaxley USA in 2012, and he’s a fellow of the Association of Accounting Technicians and a member of the Association of Tax Technicians.

He has also completed the EA qualification in the USA and plans to complete the Advanced Diploma in International Trade (ADIT).


Dyke Yaxley USA has recently celebrated its tenth anniversary and the company is uniquely positioned to understand the opportunities, challenges and rising costs facing companies with UK-USA operations, as well as the complexity of planning and preparing taxes for individuals living and working in either the UK or USA.

With offices on both sides of the Atlantic, DY USA’s team of 14 experienced professionals also provide business tax and advisory services both here and in the USA.
