Claire Hamlin Head of Not for Profit, VAT Manchester +44 (0)161 953 6397

I lead our VAT offering to not for profit clients nationally. We help clients manage their VAT affairs, ensuring they meet their obligations and do so in as efficient a manner as possible, maximising the reliefs and opportunities available to them.

Whilst predominantly working with not for profit clients, including housing associations, universities colleges and charities, I also work with a variety of clients including real estate, care and leisure.

I enjoy working with clients to help them grow and achieve their strategic ambitions. I am also keen to help clients connect with similar organisations to build their networks and as part of this I regularly host sector events which encourage networking. Being a member of the board for the North West branch of Women in Social Housing helps me to do this, as well as giving me an opportunity to give back to the sector.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our cat, Hamish. I also enjoy getting my sewing machine out but need to greatly improve my skills!
