I currently head up the business tax team in Menzies’ Woking office, where I provide tax planning advice to owner-managed businesses.
Having previously worked in-house for a UK headquartered international group, my particular area of expertise is advising and supporting companies that are looking to expand overseas.
I have first-hand experience of the tax and business regimes in a number of countries, including India, Brazil, China and the USA, and can help business owners prepare for their first steps into new territories, as well as provide on-going advice and support.
I also have significant property sector experience and am an active member of Menzies’ property and construction team, where I advise clients on issues such as ATED, tax-efficient property ownership structures and capital allowances.
My first job
Working at Birdworld. One of the parrots had picked up a few swear words (not from me!) and happily used to squawk these out to passers-by. I’m not sure parents were quite so amused.
My alternative career choice
Scuba diving instructor – somewhere hot and sunny!
