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

I am a valued tax Partner to:

  1. accountants and solicitors seeking more tax expertise for their clients, and
  2. to direct clients,

on Capital taxes (CGT / IHT) and Income tax matters for High Net Worth individuals, and corporation tax for companies.  Other professional intermediaries comprise venture capital providers, philanthropists, and IFAs to whom I provide bespoke tax solutions for their clients. 

This is done by using the benefit of 25 years experience of tax advisory assignments with Big4, medium-sized and boutique firms as well as my 3 years' commercial experience with a FTSE-100 company.  Along the way, I qualified as a tax adviser (CTA) and as an chartered accountant (FCCA). 

Particular areas of advisory work

Private client work

  • Capital gains tax structuring on buying and selling businesses (shares or assets)
  • Residence and domicile advice
  • Income tax planning, e.g. (Seed) Enterprise Investment Scheme / Venture Capital Trust advice
  • Anti-avoidance legislation

Corporate work

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

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!).

Recent client (accountants and individuals) collaborations

  • Advising on minimising CGT exposure on second homes and how to finance tax-efficiently using existing resources
  • Advising a high earner (>£150,000) on not triggering the restriction of tax relief on pension contributions
  • Structuring a private medical practice
  • Successfully challenging HMRC computations for a dentist, saving £15,000
  • Advising an entrepreneur on issuing equity to employees in a tax-efficient manner, reducing tax costs to him and staff

Other activities

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