As head of the firm's National Tax Office every day presents something different. My main focus of expertise includes capital gains tax, advising non-UK domiciles and company reorganisations. In practice this encompasses a wide range of activities, whether it be distilling what new tax law means for our clients, helping a colleague with a particularly knotty tax problem or encouraging the team to find new ways of improving our clients experience.
I've more than 40 years tax experience working for both HMRC and in the profession but still get excited by the challenges which the complexity and ever increasing length of the UK's tax code bring.
Outside of the office I spend time with my family and helping with the ever increasing number of event horses which we seem to have!
