I joined Menzies LLP as a Manager upon its merger with Harris Lipman LLP in 2015. Based at our London office, my responsibilities fall into two broad categories.
The first category is the compliance aspect. I ensure that client companies meet their financial compliance obligations correctly and in good time.
The second category relates to ad-hoc tax matters. I deal with corporation tax enquiries raised by HMRC, applications for tax clearances, tax-efficient remuneration planning and general business tax advice.
This is the aspect of my role that I cherish the most, as I seek to give that ‘added-value’ to client companies.
My first job
As a trainee accountant I learned the meaning of the audit term ‘paper bag job’ …lots of small, haphazardly thrown in bits of paper.
My most embarrassing work experience
I audited a private prep school and at lunch had to perch on a child-sized chair among all the kids. The pudding and custard was great though!
My favourite sport
I enjoy badminton.
