What is your role?
I specialise in tax, in particular that of owner managed business and personal tax, including the preparation of tax returns, P11ds and VAT returns. I am also involved with accounts preparation, including sectors such as healthcare and agriculture, which have more complex tax matters attached to them.
I am currently studying towards my CTA qualification.
What interests do you have outside of work?
I enjoy going to the gym to unwind after a long day in the office and swimming on the weekends. I recently did the X-Runner Water Wipeout course which was great fun, albeit challenging and it's my goal to be able to improve my time on the course in the future.
I also like to read and spend a quality night in with friends and family.
What is your most memorable experience?
It has to be going to pick up my little puppy, my German Shepherd Toboe, though he's not so small anymore.
What is the most valuable piece of advice you have been given during your career?
It is impossible to know absolutely everything in this profession, so never be afraid of saying you have to go away and research the subject more.
