At Stellar we recognise that our growing network of advisers are looking for a more complete service offering.
Where we identify a gap in our service offering, we will enter into a partnership with a service provider who shares the same ethos and vision as we do.
Obsidian is our partner of choice to expand our adviser offering in the bespoke tax advisory sector.
Later life planning is a growing market and with an ageing population, estate planning services have never been more important.

Providing peace of mind and support
Tax Advisory is a bespoke service primarily aimed at business owners and high net worth individuals. Stellar has partnered with Obsidian Tax, a specialist tax advisory business to bring the much-needed service to our network of clients and IFAs.
Bespoke tax advisory services aimed at:
- wealthy individuals

Tax Advisory Process
Our services encompass advice on all UK direct taxes as well as tax disputes and investigations.
We regularly work with clients who are starting, selling, expanding or restructuring a business or group of companies, as well as those who are looking to pass on their wealth, invest in a tax-incentivised manner or provide for retirement.
In every case, our service begins with a thorough analysis of the client’s position and requirements, leading to a workable solution with a comprehensive implementation plan and timetable.
All clients will benefit from a dedicated team to deliver their personalised project plan.
The delivery of the service will be managed by one of the directors at Obsidian and they will be supported by a project lead and a tax administrator to ensure the timely delivery of the agreed implementation plan.
A fixed-fee quote will be provided at the start of any project to ensure there are no unpleasant surprises further down the line.
Obsidian was founded in 2016 by Tom Moore and Faisal Sattar.
Tom began his career supporting Treasury ministers on matters relating to the Chancellor’s Budget, before holding positions with firms including Grant Thornton, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Duncan & Toplis and Haines Watts. His 30-year career has been spent exclusively in the field of tax.
Faisal is a seasoned entrepreneur with over a decade’s experience in the sector. Through his many business interests, which include health clubs and property development, he has a unique grasp of the needs of, and challenges faced by, business owners.
Together with their experienced team of specialist advisors, combined with the backing of a strong professional network, Obsidian provide a high level of bespoke tax advisory services.
Obsidian works within the boundaries set by HMRC to find ways for clients to minimise tax costs whilst achieving their commercial or personal objectives. Obsidian are well versed in the commercial and tax issues faced by high net-worth individuals and corporate clients and use a combination of technical expertise and creative thinking to untangle the most complex problems.
The UK tax system is such that, without the right advice, even simple transactions can come with unintended tax costs. But for those who understand how to access them, it also offers an abundance of reliefs, concessions and exemptions. Drawing on over 100 years’ combined experience, Obsidian helps businesses and high net-worth individuals avoid the pitfalls, take advantage of the generous reliefs provided by the tax system and safeguard their assets.
No matter how complex the situation or challenge, Obsidian will work in collaboration with clients existing professional advisors to achieve the best possible outcome.
