BDO has created a new team covering customs and trade services, with the implications of Brexit becoming an increasingly prominent concern for exporters.

The BDO Customs and International Trade team, led by Carol Lynch, will advise growth-focused companies on a range of issues relating to international and European customs and trade. This includes advice on applicable import taxes, customs duties, anti-dumping duties, agricultural levies, support on excise duties and the movement of goods subject to excise, advice on exports, support with export compliance and support with audits and investigations.

Lynch joins BDO from international trade and business services firm Crannagh & Co, which she founded and served as MD for ten years. “I am pleased to be joining BDO as this gives my existing clients and BDO’s clients access to a broader range of expertise and allows us to support our clients’ ambitious growth strategies in Ireland and internationally,” said Lynch

Managing partner Michael Costello commented: “Brexit implications will remain unclear for some time to come, but ambitious and forward thinking companies are beginning to focus on both the business opportunity and the tax implications it will have.  Providing clients with partner-led insight is one of the things that differentiates BDO, and our new team continues that ethos and helps clients understand the tax complexities of their international trade opportunities.

“Carol Lynch is widely recognised as one of the foremost tax advisors in Ireland, specialising in customs and trade advice. By adding this new service line, we are further strengthening our tax offering.”

Lynch studied History at Trinity College Dublin and did a MPhil in Archaeology at University of Cambridge. She is a qualified mediator and holds a Diploma in Executive Coaching and Training. She also holds a certificate from the Irish Management Institute’s  mini-MBA programme.
