Peter Whelan

Senior Partner, Bowmans

With clients based all over the world and across multiple time zones, my top priority is to ensure that their concerns are promptly alleviated. I provide speedy, relevant and tailored tax advice so that my clients feel assured. I make it my mission to bring a little sunshine to their day by always delivering with a smile!

With my substantial knowledge of UK and overseas tax markets, I advise those facing cross-border tax issues including both new and established businesses, from large multinational companies to SMEs. I also help individuals coming to or looking to leave the UK, non-domiciled UK residents and those seeking to invest in the UK to mitigate their tax risks. I often speak at international tax conferences and write articles on a variety of tax matters. 

If you’re interested…
After completing my degree in Commerce, I went on to study accountancy in my native South Africa and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1979. I joined Gerald Edelman in 2017, having spent over 30 years at my previous London based firm advising individuals and companies on cross-border tax issues. I spent over ten years as global vice-chairman of the international tax practice group of a global alliance, of which I was also a founding member, and have more recently been involved in the creation of XLNC, our newly established international alliance.

What is the most exciting thing on your bucket list?
I would love to explore Russia more extensively as I’ve only had the pleasure of briefly visiting Moscow and St. Petersburg. I loved both cities! There is so much more to the country to experience and I am excited at the prospect of returning one day.

What one piece of advice would you give your 10-year-old self?
Listen to the little things that others say – you never know when they might come in handy.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Invisibility! I’ve always wanted to know what people get up to when no-one is watching.

Who inspires you?
I love Ian Botham. A fighter, a legendary cricketer and a man who is not afraid to speak his mind about any matter!
