One of Ian's roles in the firm is to head the tax function to ensure that our clients pay no more tax than they are obliged to by law and that all their tax compliance requirements are completed correctly, efficiently and on time. Ian's experience of tax began in the 1980s with a spell in the Inland Revenue. Since 1990 Ian has worked for a mix of accountancy firms, from PWC to a small local firm, and several in between. He has over 20 years experience advising owners of small and medium sized businesses on their tax strategies and requirements.
Ian spent 6 years building his own tax and accounting business which merged with Danzig & Co in 2007. As a result, he has personal experience of the issues and pressures which are part and parcel of starting and running a small business. This gives him an immensely useful resource when advising smaller businesses.
Away from tax, Ian has a role as Staff Partner in the firm. He brings his experience as a fully qualified counsellor, therapist and coach to the development of the firm's team members.
Ian believes strongly in taking a holistic approach to business and loves to deal with the people issues as well as the seemingly more hard-nosed financial aspects of business. To this end Ian takes a coaching approach to business and tax advice. Helping people to reach their own conclusions about what they want from their business provides a solid platform to give specific expert advice on matters such as cash-flow or tax planning.
Ian is a Chartered Tax Adviser and also holds qualifications in Person-Centred Counselling, Gestalt Therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
In his spare time Ian enjoys hill-walking, playing his guitars and the odd glass of wine.
