Roger trained as an accountant before turning to tax, spending time in London and Scotland. When he returned to the South East, Roger spent 10 years building tax compliance and advisory businesses for law firms in Kent and London and joined Mark Davies & Associates from DWF, the world’s largest listed legal business, where he provided advice to UK and internationally based entrepreneurs and trustees.
Roger’s primary focus is on capital taxes planning for UK and non-UK domiciled individuals, together with advising on all other taxes that affect the individual, including income tax, SDLT and CGT. It is Roger‘s thorough understanding of tax compliance which allows him to use more effective tax planning techniques as it gives him an insight into the workings of HMRC and how their thought processes are developed. Roger is the current Chair of the Kent Branch of the CIOT and sits on the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group committee, helping to steer the government and create positive tax policy for those in society who cannot afford the advice required to navigate the UK’s complex tax system.
