I lead our tax investigations and disputes team in London. I trained as a tax inspector with the Inland Revenue (IR) and was a specialist investigator in IR Special Compliance Office.
Since joining the tax profession over 20 years ago, I have led investigation teams in both Scotland and London. I also spent six years in Switzerland where I focused on private banks and customer tax transparency. I have broad experience of corporate and private client tax work, and have advised in both civil and criminal tax investigations.
Digitisation has transformed tax compliance and is changing the way tax authorities interact with businesses and individuals all over the world. Our tax investigations team blends tax and risk specialisms with HMRC experience to help our clients respond to these challenges. We work to find out what matters in a tax investigation and build a better understanding between taxpayers and HMRC.
I am lucky enough to be able to split my time between London and my family home in Edinburgh, and enjoy living in both places.
