Ned Shelton is a graduate in law and commerce (UNSW) and qualified as a Chartered Accountant (Australia) in 1985.

In January 1986 he left Arthur Andersens in Sydney (where he was a Tax Manager) to move to Denmark to take up a position as International Tax Manager at the head office of Copenhagen Handelsbank. At the time the Bank was the second largest in Denmark, with operations in 10 countries.

In 1989 he moved to the Netherlands where he founded Horwath Tax Holland/Sheltons. After six years working with international tax matters in the Netherlands, he returned to Denmark, where he set up Sheltons (International Tax Counsel), Sheltons Corporate Services and Sheltons-SITTI (Sheltons International Tax Training Institute). In addition to his extensive Danish related work, he is still deeply involved with Dutch tax and trust company matters.

Mr Shelton was a member of the International Tax Committee of Horwath International from 1990 to 1993 and Chairman from 1993 until early 1996 when he moved back to Denmark from the Netherlands. He was the editor of the Dutch chapter of each of three highly regarded loose-leaf publications on international tax, published by CCH and written by Horwath International. He was also on the editorial board of the same three publications. He has written numerous articles in Danish and international tax journals. He has written a book for Lexis Nexis UK on the the area of tax treaties and international tax planning. For further information please click here
