A Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser with 18 years’ experience in the profession, I joined Simmons Gainsford in November 2020 from a top 25 firm. I head up the firm’s Corporate Tax team, dealing with corporation tax compliance and advisory matters.
I specialise in the creative, media and technology sector as well as property and some of my key specialisms have been advising on the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), employee share scheme matters such as the Enterprise Management Scheme (EMI) and also Research and Development tax relief. Before specialising in corporation tax, I was a general accountant for five years and as such feel able to advise clients both in relation to accounting and tax matters, as well as considering the commercial implications of transactional activities beyond their tax impact.
Before joining in 2007 I spent 8 years at Deloitte, the final four of which as a Senior Tax Manager. My major clients included FTSE 100 financial institutions and household names and I also advised on one of the largest transfer pricing reviews undertaken by HMRC.
I have significant experience in fund structures and I have been extensively involved in setting up and managing the tax affairs of UK and non-UK property funds.
I provide planning advice to the firm’s international clients and UK and International tax planning for both wealth retention and profit extraction.
