Practice notes


Natalie is a specialist tax consultant in the Corporate and Commercial team. She is part of a highly respected tax consultancy association, ThinkTax, and retains her affiliation with this group whilst working at Eversheds Sutherland.

Natalie is an admitted attorney and registered tax practitioner with almost 10 years of post-qualification experience. She also obtained her Master of Commerce degree from Rhodes University with distinction, with the focus of her thesis being on mergers and amalgamations from both a company law and tax law perspective.

Natalie’s experience has been largely focussed in transactional work, including leveraged transactions, structuring of management arrangements, refinancing, restructurings and disposal transactions. Her areas of tax expertise include:

• domestic corporate restructuring, including black economic empowerment transactions;

• mergers, acquisitions and divestitures;

• international tax structuring (inbound and outbound investments, and controlled foreign company planning and advice);

• employee incentive and share schemes;

• taxation of trusts; and

• general income tax advisory services including tax legal opinions, voluntary disclosure applications and advance tax ruling applications.

Natalie’s approach to tax legal advisory is to provide her clients with practical solutions that are sound in law, and believes that in building long-term relationships with her clients, they will benefit from a more robust tax function over time.
