Experience

Rapidly approaching 25 years (!) of mixed tax experience, specialising in advising owner managed businesses and family companies on a range of personal and corporate tax issues. Started in Law and after tax training with Deloitte and KPMG to CTA level, preferred the feel of smaller practices so I could enjoy a much broader tax and business experience.

Specialisms

  • Varied range of corporate and personal tax advisory and compliance
  • R&D tax advice
  • HMRC tax investigations
  • Sales of business and CGT planning
  • Capital allowances reviews
  • Tax efficient remuneration planning

Hobbies and interests

Happiest in the countryside, especially if snow and mountains are involved. Hold basic disability and able bodied ski instructor qualifications and love winter sports – probably due to a season in the Alps many moons ago and my favourite resorts are Chamonix & Wengen.

Love time with the family (thankfully, 3 sons are now less demanding), walking with my dogs, reading (Paulo Coelho, you need to write more…), yoga and meditation. May yet rediscover an ability to play 5-a-side football, but the jury is still out. Have a long distant yearning to run a coffee roastery one day specialising in direct trade, environmental protection and low carbon methods…….in the Alps, would be perfect!

Fascinated by new approaches to work to increase rest, recuperation and productivity vs hours worked.
