Me in a minute
I seek to understand your business and operation
My approach is genuinely commercial and I have an MBA qualification to back that up. I seek to understand your business and operation. That enables me to analyse the tax consequences in a way that drills into the practical aspects and leaves you with a practical rather than theoretical answer. I may offer you more than one solution, but I give a clear steer as to the solution I would choose. I also provide practical assistance in dealing with HMRC, and with counterparties in contracts.
