What do you do?

I work with fast growing entrepreneurial businesses and their owners, assisting in providing commercial and straight forward tax solutions for a wide range of shareholder matters.

Why do you do it?

I applied for an audit role at CP straight out of college, at which point I had no idea ‘tax’ was even a job. After not making the cut for an audit role (not that I’m still sour about it), I was offered an opportunity to explore a role in tax.

7 years later, I consider myself lucky to have stumbled into tax. Sometimes things just work out!

What kind of projects have you been involved in?

I get stuck into a wide breadth of tax matters when dealing with entrepreneurial businesses. Whether they are looking to restructure their business, offer an incentive plan to key people, raise funding (including SEIS, EIS and VCT) or carry out a transaction.

However, for me the most important factor is delivering the above in a straight talking, commercially driven manner whilst ensuring all options (however ‘outside the box’) have been considered. That’s when I can free up your time to focus on growing your business.

What’s on top of your bucket list?

For those who know me it won’t come as a shock, but I’d love to operate an outdoor/rural restaurant that specialises in all sorts of BBQ and hearty foods. None of that fine dining sized nonsense.
