I am a Corporate Tax Manager based in our Derby office.
What can I do for your organisation?
I manage the corporate tax compliance process, to ensure that our clients receive a high-quality and efficient service. I work closely with the audit and accounts teams, as well as specialists across the tax department, to make the compliance cycle as smooth as possible.
Having started my career at a railway consultancy, I soon realised that accountancy was the path for me and I joined a midlands-based practice, studying for the AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualification.
I worked there for almost 6 years, gaining experience in accounts and audit before deciding to specialise in tax. As well as AAT, I also completed the ICAEW ACA exams to become a Chartered Accountant and the CIOT Chartered Tax Advisor qualification.
I joined Smith Cooper in 2018 as an Assistant Manager, and was promoted to Manager in January 2020.
A background in accountancy, along with a degree in Business Management, has given me a well-rounded view of how companies operate. I’ve worked with a broad range of clients and enjoy getting to know what makes each business work to ensure our advice is relevant and practical.
Outside of work I enjoy holidays and catching up with friends. I’m also renovating a house, so working on improving my DIY skills!
