Charities and Trust Manager

"I always want my clients to find our interactions beneficial and to enjoy the comfort of knowing that their affairs are being handled."

I find helping my clients extremely satisfying and work towards providing them with the most effective and useful guidance possible. I always want my clients to find our interactions beneficial and to enjoy the comfort of knowing that their affairs are being handled.

The main focus of my work surrounds matters relating to the charitable sector, providing clients with advice on governance, accounting and tax, as well as dealing with the disclosure requirements associated with their statutory accounts. I also advise clients on trust matters and assist with trust formation, deal with estate administration, as well as providing personal tax advice. The charities that I work with span various sectors including the arts, conservation and education.
