The shape of the retail sector has changed significantly in recent years. The traditional model that has existed for decades is in flux, as people change not only how they buy, but what they buy and where they buy it. Retailers have had to rapidly respond to the changing business environment and the complexities that come with it.
Technology, data security, the supply chain and competitor ‘price wars’ are causing retailers to review their business models and look for efficiencies to ensure that business forecasts are achieved. Our retail and consumer team can provide a full range of advisory, tax and accounting services to help our clients successfully develop their businesses to not only deal with the changing retail environment, but thrive in it.
From growing entrepreneurial OMBs to household names, we’ve been advising and guiding accounting and business strategy in the retail sector for many years. We have helped clients grow, diversify and expand internationally.

In addition to advising owner-managed businesses on strategic matters and tax planning, he is fully involved in all aspects of a client's business which includes audit, accounts, tax compliance, recruitment etc.
Yogan has a wide range of clients, particularly in the Technology, Manufacturing and Property sectors, as well as in Fashion and Healthcare. His portfolio includes individual personal high net-worth tax clients, limited companies, limited liability partnerships and unincorporated businesses. He acts for both UK and international clients - notable territories include India, South East Asia, Middle East, USA and Cyprus. Yogan is also involved in fund raising, due diligence and the Reporting Accountant role.
Yogan is a Fellow of the ICAEW and a member of the ICAEW tax faculty and audit and assurance faculty. As one of the senior members of our International team Yogan travels widely meeting the needs of our clients wishing to do business overseas or set-up in the UK. He represents the firm in Middle East and Asia Pacific regions within Baker Tilly International and is responsible for the firm’s India desk.
