London based Chartered Tax Adviser specialising in international tax issues for individuals and global SMEs

Services

Provision of tax advice to :

- Entrepreneurial individuals and businesses often but not always in an international context
- Other Professionals – finacial advers , accountants, solicitors, etc

You will receive direct practical advice from me, not just technical papers. I differentiate myself from say the Big Four by being prepared to offer an opinion instead of rehashing legislation. The advice given is, of course, still technically robust, based on considerable years of experience.

Testimonials

"I was very happy with the tax advice that Andrew provided.  He was able to save me some money and to provide information that will help me for years into the future.  His overall attitude is very professional and after sales service excellent." - Derek A , CIMA.

Andrew provided my husband and me with advice on our foreign FHL property.  He guided us through the complex tax requirements, assisted us with a capital allowances claim and advised us on how to make our property as tax efficient as possible for us going forwards.  We gave him an extra challenge by contacting him relatively late in the day so he had to cope with fast approaching tax deadlines.  Andrew’s help was invaluable saving us considerable amounts of money.
