Describe what you do at Whitley Stimpson?

I specialise in advising clients in the agricultural and landed estates sector. I have particular expertise in Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax compliance and planning. I enjoy assisting farmers and landowners in establishing the optimal financial and business structures to be adopted to mitigate the potential capital taxes impact on sales and transfers of land.

Why Whitley Stimpson?

At Whitley Stimpson, the client always comes first. Our broad range of services and friendly approach means we are able to assist our clients effectively and professionally, whilst building and maintaining strong relationships.

My experience.

Since qualifying as FCA in 1979 I have worked with a wide range of clients including farmers and landowners, solicitors, barristers and Lloyd’s underwriters. I am a member of the Tax Faculty and the Farming and Rural Business Group of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

I am also a professional member of the National Farmers Union and a member of the Agricultural Law Association.

What matters to you?

Outside of the office I am an enthusiastic fly fisherman and hold honorary posts as treasurer of the Cotswold Fly Fishers and trustee and finance director of the Cotswolds Rivers Trust.

I am a keen golfer and a member of Frilford Heath Golf Club.
