I am a Tax Manager here at Menzies. I started working in tax in 1989 and so have over three decades of experience of working in tax. I qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser in 2001.
As well as making sure that our clients meet their compliance obligations, I enjoy providing tax advice and seeking ways for clients to minimise their tax liabilities where possible. I particularly like taking on a difficult tax problem and advising on it in
a way that is easy to understand. I have a mixed tax background and am experienced in advising both company and personal tax clients. These have ranged from entrepreneurs, owner managed businesses, high net worth individuals, partnerships, corporate executives, trusts and clients in the music, sports and entertainment industries, including advising non-UK resident/domiciled individuals on international tax issues. I have also worked as a Technical Consultant for one of the leading accountancy bodies, providing advisory services to its members.
Outside work, I am passionate about music, enjoy two-wheeled transportation (with or without an engine) and regularly play badminton. Most of all, I love to spend time with my two daughters.
Alternative career choice:
My alternative career choices would be a musician or a cricketer.
