Long-standing tax Partner to accountants & solicitors seeking the reassurance of more tax expertise for their clients, & to individuals & companies on Capital & Corporate taxes.

I have often been described as a valued tax Partner to:

  1. Accountants, solicitors and IFAs seeking more tax expertise for their clients, and
  2. Direct clients (individuals and corporates) seeking their own tax advice (or 2nd opinions),

on matters relating to Capital taxes (Capital Gains Tax / Inheritance Tax) and Income Tax for High Net Worth individuals, and Corporation Tax for companies. 

In addition, I am often called upon to help other professional intermediaries such as venture capital providers and philanthropists to whom I provide bespoke tax solutions for their clients. 

This is done by using the benefit of 30+ years experience of tax advisory assignments with Big4, medium-sized and boutique tax & accountancy firms as well as my 3 years' commercial experience with a FTSE-100 company.  I am qualified as a chartered tax adviser (CTA) and as an chartered accountant (FCCA). 

When you are ready, please do contact me at ( or (  Both firms are firms of chartered tax advisers.

Particular areas of advisory work

Private client work

  • Capital gains tax structuring on buying and selling businesses (shares or assets)
  • Residence and domicile advice, including on-shore and off-shore trusts
  • Investor tax reliefs, e.g. (Seed) Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS & EIS) & Venture Capital Trusts (VCTs)
  • Anti-avoidance legislation - this is particularly relevant to explain why most 'whizzy' ideas do not work

Corporate work

  • Tax-efficient reorganisations, corporate reconstructions, share-for-share exchanges
  • Employment-related securities and tax-efficient share incentives for employees
  • Substantial shareholding exemption

However, the areas of specialisms extend much more than the above so do call for a discussion to see how I can help you.

Method of working

I provide pragmatic and practical advice with a collaborative approach in a way that suits the client and their adviser.  Advice is generally in writing (email/letter) following a conference call or meeting. Much of my work is on a one-off basis but a significant element is on a retainer basis where advice (often second opinion work) is regularly given.  I am more than happy to meet at your location.  Fees are usually based on a fixed fee quote or project basis so that all parties are clear as to costs from the outset (no surprises!).

When you are ready, please do contact me at ( or (  Both firms are firms of chartered tax advisers.

Other activities

I was formerly a volunteer adviser at TaxAid, a UK national charity providing tax advice to taxpayers unable to afford professional representation, and was the Treasurer and a Trustee between 2004 and 2012.

As something a little different, I am also looking, through my own endeavours and through my range of contacts (business and music), at philanthropic ways to help up-and-coming talented pianists start their professional careers.
