What do you do?
I help businesses achieve their corporate tax compliance requirements for companies and groups of companies of all sizes and locations.
Why do you do it?
I should possibly have been an event organizer as the skills for the compliance coordination are definitely transferable! But then I wouldn’t have been able to get involved in the detail of tax legislation which keeps me occupied. Tax is a people business and that keeps the variety in the day to day which is a winner.
What kind of projects have you been involved in?
A review of corporate tax liability calculations for a large UK group that had been prepared by the client. The review covered all of the more detailed and new legislation changes. This was a real “get your teeth into” exercise and helped the client understand that their calculations were appropriate, suggestions on appropriate disclosure to HMRC and a reminder of new deadlines so that penalties were avoided.
What’s on top of your bucket list?
To meet Valentino Rossi, Yamaha Motogp rider and 9 times world champion. Known as the “GOAT”, he is considered by some to be the greatest rider of all time.
At 40 years of age he still races at the top of his class beating much younger riders. His aim is to win the 10th championship before he hangs up his gloves. Over his career he has been continuingly written off as past it but keeps bouncing back. A pure inspiration for tenacity.
