I joined Shorts after spending 15 years working for KPMG in Sheffield and Leeds. Throughout my career I have specialised in corporate tax, helping companies of all sizes and across all sectors effectively manage their tax affairs.

Since joining Shorts I have focussed exclusively on the tax reliefs available to innovative companies, principally R&D and Patent Box.   As a founder member of Shorts’ Radius team, I enjoy helping companies throughout the region access these very valuable reliefs.

Over the coming weeks, our phased transition will see members of our team returning to the office, where we have made a number of changes to ensure a safe working environment. All of our team can still be contacted by clients, whether working from home or in the office. If you would like to speak to one of them, please contact them via their direct email or mobile number.
