What do you do?

I make tax exciting, working with shareholders of private family businesses and dealing with whatever tax issues they throw at me.

Why do you do it?

I just love tax – sad though it may sound. We really can make a difference for our clients through practical and pragmatic tax planning, which is otherwise a real cost to them.

What kind of projects have you been involved in?

Helping clients plan ahead of a disposal so as to ensure that they take maximum advantage of the various reliefs and allowances out there, such as Entrepreneurs’ Relief.

Advising on how best to extract value from businesses, using the wider family in a tax efficient way.

“Achieving the impossible” – particularly where another advisor says something can’t be done. We have had many successes on this front, including obtaining advance HMRC tax clearances where others have said it wasn’t possible.

What’s on top of your bucket list?

Go wild camping and walking in the Dolomites for a month in the summer on my own. Enjoy those stunning early morning views, the solitude, great food and stay fit in the process.
