    Count me in. I'd love to hear from Cooper Parry about relevant updates and insights.

    What do you do?

    As a senior manager within the private client tax team, I head up our tax compliance service.

    My ultimate goal is to ensure we have dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s so your tax affairs are up to date and correct, whilst making sure we take any opportunity to reduce the amount of tax to pay along the way.

    Why do you do it?

    Helping people! From assisting family members with basic tax matters when I first stepped into the world of work, I soon realised not only did I have a knack for tax, but it was a satisfying and ever-changing field to work in.

    Tax is a mighty beast at times and with everyone’s needs being different, every day presents a new problem to solve which is an area that I thrive in. It’s also really rewarding to have the chance to provide guidance and assurance to individuals which in turn helps reduce the stress and worry that can come with dealing with your tax affairs

    What kind of projects have you been involved in?

    Large capital transactions, expatriate and secondment facilitation, structuring employee benefits, dealing with multi country tax treaties and tax systems, multiyear loss relief projects, partnership re-organisation… you name it, I’ve been involved in it during my time in tax.

    Whether you have complex tax matters in which you requires assistance or just need help keeping HMRC off your back, we can definitely help!

    What’s on top of your bucket list?

    A chance to drive a formula 1 car is 100% on the top of my bucket list.

    To have an opportunity experience what can be achieved when the best minds are brought together to create a vehicle which pushes all limits and boundaries would be incredible.
