Richard believes that managing taxation is about the client journey. This involves not just looking into their past but understanding where they are now and what they are trying to achieve. It involves managing a lifelong strategy that is uniquely tailored to each individual’s experience. By focusing on tax management as a journey, his goal is to maximise wealth, make life easier, and provide peace of mind.
Coming from the UK, with expat experience while living in New Zealand for over a decade, Richard brings first-hand experience of the challenges expats face. He has developed a deep understanding of UK tax issues surrounding residence and domicile, inheritance tax, wealth planning, CGT, and tax compliance for both individuals and businesses.
His previous experience includes an extensive career at EY working with global families and individuals, as well as work as a Senior Tax Consultant in one of London’s top 20 firms.
