The best accountant in the world would offer advice that is both timely and relevant.

These were the words that were ringing in my ears as I started my firm, IP Tax Solutions, back in January 2013. These very words were uttered by a highly successful entrepreneur and they have turned into a goal that I have been seeking to reach every day since.

To pop up with the right advice, insight and experience to fit each client's needs at the right time.

Having trained with one of the Big 4 accountancy firms, progressing to senior manager before joining a mid-tier firm as tax partner, my goal has been to bridge the gap between small, independent local accountancy firms and the large international firms.

To seek to offer timely and relevant advice to entrepreneurs from startup to exit.

And this is what I do at IP Tax Solutions. I deal with those trickier bits that many local accountants and bookkeepers prefer not to and try, where possible, to wrap this up into accessible online courses and updates for quick and easy access.

Giving you the answers you need, right when you need them

I believe that it is important for entrepreneurs to consider your tax affairs holistically. To understand how one tax relief claim might have a knock-on effect elsewhere - for example, the interaction of taxes between you and your company. This is often missed. And can be costly on an exit.

Twenty years' of tax experience and knowledge come to bear. I think that's important.

Timely and relevant. The quest continues. If this resonates, it would be good to explore how we might be able to work together or you can subscribe to get access to latest tips and updates (click Subscribe in the top right-hand corner).
