Andrew believes that good communication and clear explanation is at the heart of any effective structuring project, and that it is important to stay focused on what really matters.
Andrew explains his philosophy as being:
My job is to provide long-term solutions, explain them clearly, and make sure that they work in the real world. It’s not really a solution at all if it’s too complicated to understand or if clients are left worried about being challenged, – and that could include brand and reputational damage as well as tax authority investigation.
Outside the office Andrew enjoys theatre, museum and galleries, with a particular love of ancient history and modern art. He is co-owned by three cats.
