I look after owner managed businesses and their owners with regard to tax planning, business growth and generally staying on top of business compliance for SMEs. I have vast experience in dealing with R&D tax relief; tax planning and clients who have dealings overseas. I also look after individuals’ tax planning and reporting requirements with HMRC.

In particular, my specialist areas are in the tech and creative sector; musicians, actors and artists; professionals and consultants. I also look after UK subsidiaries of overseas companies, ensuring all compliance needs are met whilst keeping business owners up to date with management accounts, tax planning and changes in the UK tax laws.
