What do you do?
I am an all singing, all dancing Corporate Tax Partner (quite literally – read on and it’ll all make sense!) My primary focus is to engage with clients to establish their current business goals and understand the direction in which their business is going. By understanding their commercial aims, I work with clients to spot tax planning opportunities and identify areas in which tax charges can be mitigated.
Why do you do it?
As a born to be performer and starring in the West End as a teenager, my sights were originally set on Hollywood! Thankfully, it came to my attention that there was one place that hit Hollywood out of the park – Cooper Parry!
Here at CP, I can do what I love every day – work with great people and great clients. My passion is building and nurturing excellent working relationships with my clients and gaining a deep understanding of their businesses so that I am best placed to offer them invaluable tax advice. I find it particularly rewarding helping businesses with their taxation affairs especially when this leads to opportunities. For one client, my keen eye for tax planning led to tax savings in excess of £1m!
What kind of projects have you been involved in?
I have looked after a wide range of clients varying in industry from high profile fashion, premiership football clubs, property development/investment groups, hotels, bars, restaurants, student accommodation, serviced offices, recruitment, digital media, influencers, healthtech, fintech and proptech to name but a few! My experience ranges from dealing with owner-managed businesses to large corporate groups.
I like to be with my clients for the journey servicing them across a range of services from year-end compliance, R&D, EMI share options / other equity participation schemes, raising finance (EIS, SEIS, VCT), restructuring, international expansion, due diligence and any other business or financial advisory matters leading up to an exit event and supporting them through this process.
What’s on top of your bucket list?
I am a huge football fan so it would have to be watching England play at the World Cup or the Euro! There’s nothing quite like the atmosphere of a football game so I can’t imagine how exciting a match would be in a global tournament. The dream would be to see England lift the trophy! With the current squad, I’m confident that it’s only a matter of time.
