Nikhil joined our London office as Corporate Tax Director in 2019. With a career that started in the Big 4 back in 2004, Nikhil is a qualified chartered accountant (ACA) by trade, but has always worked as a corporate tax specialist.
After over sixteen years in practice, gained mostly in mid-tier firms, Nikhil has accumulated a broad range of experience and advises predominantly on corporate tax matters for clients of varying sizes across different industry sectors. Nikhil has particular expertise working with the Tech industry, from start-ups to well-established companies, and has been hugely successful in obtaining Research and Development (R&D) Tax Relief for his clients. He is also passionate about the various creative sector tax reliefs, in particular the UK’s Video Games Tax Relief (VGTR), and he actively supports the video games industry whenever he can.
Nikhil is an advocate for entrepreneurship and has been accepted as a Fellow of the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs, which is the institute’s most prestigious recognition for experienced professionals. His broader experience includes advising on corporate restructuring, tax efficient employee share schemes, company valuations, the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), the Patent Box regime and Entrepreneur’s Relief.
Nikhil is also a member of the Institute of Sales Professionals (ISP), the leading, not-for-profit international professional body for sales. The ISP provides sales advice and support to some of the biggest organisations in the world and is funded and backed by the UK Government.
When not at the office, Nikhil enjoys spending time with his wife and 4-year old daughter. He enjoys travelling, reading, listening to music and watching movies. He is also known to play video games – purely for research purposes of course! His ultimate passion is cars and he hopes one day to fulfil his goal of obtaining a National B Competition Racing License!
