I head up the Employer Solutions team. I previously managed the Solent office tax team, responsible for property taxes, Capital Gains tax, HM Revenue & Customs tax investigations and employer solutions work.
I was instrumental in the creation of the Solent tax surgery, a club for smaller accountancy firms, geared to building relationships, with the intention of providing a trusted expert for the smaller firm to go to for technical assistance.
Initially I joined HM Revenue & Customs as a direct entrant Executive Officer in 1985, before joining the accountancy profession in 1988. I have worked for firms of various different sizes, from a sole practitioner, up to a practice that demerged from a top 5 firm.
