Tax planning for individuals and companies in order to maximise and retain wealth
Spotting opportunities and advising clients on tax planning matters to ensure they continue to pay as little tax as legitimately possible and at the same time playing a key role in driving the practice forward.
After my A-levels I joined a branch of RBS in my hometown of Walsall. A couple of years later I decided I wanted a change and joined a firm of accountants in Birmingham as a tax junior. I passed my ATT and then relocated to Manchester, joining Milner Boardman Ltd. I qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) and moved to Champion Accountants in Worsley as part of their tax planning team. Having spent nearly 5 years there I returned to Milner Boardman in October 2012.
