Business & Tax Services

I am a Partner in our Business and Tax Services team, having worked my way up through the ranks since starting in 1983. As well as my client work, I enjoy being part of the many positive changes seen at Ellacotts, including investment in both people and systems to enhance the quality of the firm’s services. Our development as a business, and as individuals, is a continual process to make a difference in how we can work with our clients and make Ellacotts leading advisers in our areas of expertise.

I have been lucky to build a wealth of experience with working closely with our clients and seen their successes and use this knowledge to help more people. I work with a wide range of clients and businesses from start-ups through to the important years of development change and growth.  My client portfolio incorporates a broad array of sector industries including commercial, property, healthcare and professional services. A key part of our service is to listen to our clients and understand their current position and the objectives they wish to achieve so that we may help them on their journey. This can include business, software systems and taxation advice. The taxation work includes dealing with individual compliance needs to detail business and personal tax planning.

I am also the Finance Partner at Ellacotts and therefore I can share with our clients my experiences of operating the finance part of our own business.

In leisure time, I enjoy a round of golf on our local courses and enjoy many other outdoor activities. I take great pleasure in training with the Ellacotts team for our annual charity events, which have included the Wolf Run, 24 hour bowling and bike rides.  A great way to exercise!
