Meet the team


While introduced as “a simple tax”, for most organisations this could not be further from the truth. We can guide you through the constantly evolving VAT maze, ensuring you avoid the many pitfalls that might await you.

Our seven-strong expert team focuses solely on public bodies and has VAT and Indirect Taxes experience working in local government, police, fire, at HMRC, and in the Big 4 and other large firms of advisors.


Employment Taxes

Taxes raised by HMRC relating to employment account for over half the revenue generated by HMRC each year, so it is vital to ensure that your organisation is not exposed to any unwelcome surprises. At the same time, you should be aware of opportunities to reduce costs.

We understand that employment tax can be complex and time-consuming, so our experts are here to take the burden off of you.

We have helped scores of public bodies save £millions through Land Taxes relief claims. We also advise on projects, both simple and complex, ensuring they account for the right tax at the right time, thus avoiding penalties and interest.
