As a Chartered Tax Advisor, James is responsible for delivering a full range of tax services in line with current UK laws and regulations.
His role regularly requires him to perform complex analysis of financial transactions, often spanning many reporting periods, and to subsequently prepare historic corporation, income and capital gains tax calculations based on his findings.
He has obtained a broad tax knowledge base and assists senior members of staff in conducting technical research to find solutions for clients and to identify robust arguments to assist in preparing defences for clients undergoing a tax disclosure.
Previously, James worked for a prestigious private bank, where he managed the team responsible for ensuring tax documentation reported income and capital transactions in line with current UK legislation.
The role also required him to provide technical support and deal with complex enquiries from clients and their tax representatives.
