I joined PKF Smith Cooper in May 2022 as a VAT Assistant Manager, and I am based in the Nottingham office.
What can I do for your organisation?
From VAT returns, supply chain mapping, to advice on complex or contentious areas of VAT. I am highly experienced with a broad range of backroads in VAT which uniquely places us in the position to advise on common or very niche areas.
My career in tax began as a tax collector for HMRC in 2014. I was later promoted and offered a position as a VAT inspector in 2016. I later left HMRC to work for a specialist tax consultancy and dispute team within one of the largest fee protection insurance providers in the UK.
In that role I assisted clients with VAT disputes with HMRC, covering in person visits, ADR meetings and preparing cases for the Tribunal. When I wasn’t out on the road representing clients, I would carry out complex VAT advisory work largely focusing on reports for solicitors or CFOs.
From there I moved into practice working for a top 10 firm that specialised in charities and not-for-profits. Finally, I made the move to PKF Smith Cooper in May 2022.
I have extensive experience in representing clients during HMRC inquires and engaging counsel when necessary.
Beyond litigation, I regularly advise clients on land and property transactions, partial exemption matters, supply chain mapping and UK customs.
Outside of work I have a great family I love spending time with. Getting away from the desk and being out on country walks is definitely a favourite of mine too. Beyond that I enjoy cycling, Pilates (great for the back!) and reading.
