activpayroll Expands Global Mobility Team with New Manager

activpayroll, the global payroll and tax compliance specialist headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland is thrilled to be expanding its Global Mobility team in the Central Belt, appointing Steph Smith as Global Tax Manager.

With a background in law, Steph has developed a wide knowledge of key issues and concerns that companies with a global footprint have, whilst working in global mobility for a Big Four professional services company. Steph has a wealth of experience in public speaking and debating, bringing something a little different to activpayroll’s wide ranging skill-set.

Steph will be based in the firm’s Edinburgh office where activpayroll’s Global Mobility Division is headquartered and is responsible, together with the Aberdeen team, for delivering the entire Global Mobility solution to globally mobile individuals and their employers.

The Edinburgh team relocated to larger premises last year, providing continued growth within the Central Belt and globally which has resulted in significant recruitment in both the global payroll and global mobility divisions.

With dedicated meeting rooms facilitating an ever increasing number of global customer kick off and governance meetings, activpayroll’s Edinburgh office continues to expand.

Steph comments: “Being able to solve a complex global mobility issue to make our customers compliant and put in place a process which they feel comfortable with going forward is a great feeling.

What appealed to me about joining activpayroll after working in other professional services firms was that we could offer a “one-stop shop” for all our customers’ payroll and global mobility requirements, with the payroll and global mobility teams working closely together to provide a seamless service.”

Graham McKechnie, Global Tax Director of activpayroll, said: “With more and more organisations expanding internationally, the demand for global mobility services is higher than ever. Steph is a great addition to the team and brings with her a lot of experience in the global mobility arena that will benefit our customers greatly.”
