I am Chairman of Henderson Loggie and lead our award-winning VAT team. I cover all four offices providing specialist advice on technical VAT compliance and advisory, training and development.
Having spent 16 years with HM Revenue & Customs carrying out VAT assurance visits for a wide range of businesses – from small retailers to local authorities, I have gained considerable experience of HM Revenue & Customs inspections. I can help with planning opportunities for VAT efficiency and can advise our clients on retrospective reclaim opportunities, securing significant VAT repayments. Having then worked in the ‘Big 4’ for over 6 years, I created our VAT advisory practice in 2005.
I can also advise on other indirect taxes e.g. landfill tax, aggregates levy, climate change levy, and also offer in-house technical updates to the legal profession and our Virtual Accountants Network (VAN).
In addition to my tax specialism, I lead our Education Sector Group, ensuring that that team meets all the needs of the sector including Universities & their related Student Unions, Colleges and Independent Schools – from audit, to advisory and across all the services the firm provides.
Outside of work, I am a keen gardener & DIYer, occasional golfer and follower of my football team of choice, Middlesbrough FC.
