Mark joined us in 2005 after training with a small provincial practice and rising through the ranks at another ‘Top 20’ accountancy firm. He has experienced a variety of roles but for nearly 30 years now he has focused upon tax, including the provision of advice and assistance in respect of charitable and family trusts (both UK and offshore), inheritance tax mitigation and residence/ domicile issues. Mark looks after the needs of a number of personal tax clients and has a hands-on role as a trustee of several trusts.
Mark is a member of our Tax Investigations and Enquiries team, our National Tax Group, our Charities Group and our National Probate Group.
Mark is an authorised individual for the purposes of carrying out non-contentious probate work. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants and a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), a professional body which brings together accountants, lawyers and investment managers who specialise in this particular field. He also sits on the committee of STEP’s Charity Special Interest Group.
A contributor to some of our publications and to this website, Mark enjoys writing on technical issues and helping the reader to understand the latest issues and developments.
Away from the office, Mark tries to keep the weeds under control on his allotment, enjoy the Hertfordshire countryside and spend as much time as he can with his two lovely daughters.
