Our people

Tara Payne


I have been with Rayner Essex since 2021 and I am the Private Client Tax Manager within the London office.

I am ATT qualified and have over 20 years’ experience working within the Private Client sector and have worked for a number of practices within the top 75.

Over the years I have dealt with a wide variety of private client tax issues ranging from income tax and capital gains tax compliance and tax planning for High-Net-Worth Individuals and Non-UK Residents.

I love being able to help clients and thrive on ensuring that deadlines are met, the 31st of January deadline for filing of Self-Assessment Tax Returns is always a challenge!

I also relish mentoring and training those that have just started out on the path of their tax career.

Beyond my desk I enjoy long walks with my dogs, travel to sunnier climes, cinema, cooking and socialising, though I do enjoy relaxing with a good book and a glass or two of wine!
