Tax Manager

"Tailored advice and planning can make a real difference in the completion of both the short-term and long-term objectives of the client, and I want my clients to know I will be there for them throughout this journey."

Tax is ever-changing, dynamic and complex. Therefore, meeting clients’ individual needs and understanding how tax fits in to their life is of the utmost importance to me. Tailored advice and planning can make a real difference in the completion of both the short-term and long-term objectives of the client, and I want my clients to know I will be there for them throughout this journey. My clients can expect focused and in-depth advice on Income tax, Capital Gains Tax, Corporation tax or IHT tax matters.

I work with clients from various backgrounds, from entrepreneurs and corporate entities to high net worth individuals. I have specialised in Private Client tax with an extensive focus on high net worth individuals, primarily those regarded as non-UK domiciled on issues such as remittance planning, and pre-residency issues post-arrival tax planning.

Having graduated with a degree in Accounting and Finance in 2007, I went on to become a member of the Association of Taxation Technicians in 2009 and qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser in 2014.

Before I joined Gerald Edelman in 2018, I worked for a number of firms, including the Big Four, specialising in Private Client Tax and advising high and ultra-high net worth individuals and their families. I also worked in the Channel Islands on a six-month Private Bank project. 

What is the most exciting thing on your bucket list? 
Skydiving over the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. There is no better way to see the city’s iconic landmarks and features! It will be an experience like no other. 

What one piece of advice would you give your 10-year-old self? 
Believe in yourself. There’s no limit to what you can achieve. 

If you could have any superpower, what would it be? 
Power to change the minds of the Government. I would like for more money to be put towards Health and Education.

Who inspires you?
I find inspiration in a variety of people and things. However, I would have to say that the person who has inspired me the most has to be my manager when I started out as a tax trainee. He was well respected and always made time to support his colleagues and empowered them to succeed.
