Rickard Keen has announced that Tax Director Keith Bell retired on 31 March, but remains as an active consultant.

Keith Bell founded the tax department at Rickard Keen in 1978. He is recognised as a leading tax specialist with a strong reputation for working with clients on inheritance tax planning strategies. Keith also advises high net worth clients, family-owned companies and large corporate groups.

Throughout his career, Keith has been heavily involved with the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT). He became a member in 1977 after passing the inaugural intermediate exam, and the final exam. He acted as branch secretary for the Essex branch for 13 years, branch chairman for a further eight years, and is now regional co-ordinator for the East Midlands and East Anglia areas. Keith is also a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

The directors at Rickard Keen would like to invite you to his retirement function on Thursday 2 April at The Lawn, Hall Road, Rochford, Essex SS4 1PL from 6pm to 8pm for food, drinks and plenty of reminiscing about Keith’s wonderful career at Rickard Keen.

Current staff, along with retired partners and team members, joined her in celebrating her well-earned retirement with a buffet and drinks reception with live music at Sands Restaurant on Eastern Esplanade in Southend.  

Alan Worsdale, Managing Director, said: “Sue will certainly be missed by partners, staff and clients alike and we wish her well in her retirement.”
