I joined Shorts’ Radius team, having previously worked at HM Revenue & Customs for 33 years and having performed a variety of roles over the years.

Whilst at HM Revenue & Customs, I specialised in R&D tax credits as a Tax Inspector bringing experience and knowledge of the R&D scheme that few other providers can rival. This enables me to maximise our clients’ claims whilst preparing a robust claim that meets current HMRC guidelines.

I have extensive knowledge of HMRC enquiries and how to minimise the risk of any claim. If you or another provider have submitted an R&D claim and have an HMRC enquiry, I can also help to advise on this and guide you through the process.

Having worked at HMRC for so long, I understand their processes and this is a valuable tool for Shorts and our clients.
