I am a senior manager within the firm’s Authors & Journalists group, looking after the accounts and tax affairs of sole traders, partnerships and owner-managed businesses.
I represent a wide variety of clients, including authors, journalists, broadcasters, producers, actors and musicians – from those just starting out in their careers to established household names. I provide a full range of accounts and taxation services, from compliance to associated advice, as well as more detailed planning and structuring.
In addition, I run workshops advising businesses on accounts and tax compliance matters.
A career highlight was in advising a sole trader client to incorporate his business and then structuring it to ensure maximum personal and corporation tax savings. Subsequently, I carried out planning to ensure an efficient transfer of the business to the next generation.
Another memorable highlight was acting for a client who had entered the country as an illegal immigrant and then assisting him in bringing a large number of business accounts and tax returns up to date. I negotiated with HMRC to fully mitigate the penalties and interest that arose. This allowed him to successfully apply for UK residency.
