What is your role?
I work with clients to finalise their annual accounts and review their corporation tax liability. I have over 30 years’ experience working with owner managed businesses, aiming to identify their key business drivers. Whatever these may be, I focus on improving my clients’ profitably whilst managing their taxation exposure.
What else are you involved with?
I am the Treasurer of the Lincolnshire and South Lincolnshire Society of Chartered Accountants.
I really enjoy being part of our Corporate Tax group. This reinforces my knowledge and allows me to be involved with our other offices.
What interests do you have outside of work?
Outside of anything accountancy related I enjoy walking my dog, watching sports (I follow West Bromwich Albion, but usually only on TV these days) and spending time with my granddaughters.
What is your most memorable experience?
Visiting the Amalfi Coast in Italy takes some beating. I’m trying to do things outside of my comfort zone and I really enjoyed the charity abseil I completed recently with colleagues. My contribution to our D&T Bake Off Challenge turned out better than I had expected!
