With more than 20 years' experience working in indirect tax, including five years working as a VAT inspector for the UK tax authorities, and the remainder in practice, I enjoy advising businesses on all matters around UK and international indirect tax.
My work involves providing consulting and advisory services on the more complicated commercial aspects of large and complex businesses. I work across all sectors with extensive experience in the IT, technology, telecoms and digital media sectors.
I am delighted to be the chairman of Grant Thornton International's EMEA indirect tax committee. This role enables to me work with member firms across the world, share knowledge and best practice, as well as train and mentor our people. I also sit on various committees and consultation groups with HMRC and HM Treasury, including, recently, groups concerning new voucher rules and an EU-standardised VAT return.
In my spare time I enjoy messing about in boats on the river, walking and spending time with family and friends.
