What is your role?
My role encompasses a huge variety of tax matters, and over the years I have sat on each of the firm’s tax technical committees. I am driven by a genuine (and some might say unhealthy) enthusiasm for tax work, and providing bespoke tax advice aimed at the specific needs of each client. My specialisms include corporation tax, capital allowances and VAT on land & property, I am also involved in the tax aspects of Lloyd’s underwriters as part of the Fidentia team.
I am also Head of Legal Practice for our sister company, Duncan & Toplis Probate Services Limited, assisting clients with all non-contentious probate matters.
What else are you involved with?
In 2016, I became a director of Castlegate Financial Management Ltd.
What interests do you have outside of work?
I enjoy cooking, gardening, obeying the whims of my cat and am a keen American Football enthusiast.
What is your favourite...
Book? Lord of the Rings - experienced a genuine sense of loss when I finished reading this that I can never again experience it for the first time.
Album? Ever fluctuating, but as I write this; Rage Against the Machine's self-titled album of 1992. Pure gold.
Sports team? San Francisco 49ers, though getting to matches can be difficult
