John is an indirect tax partner and is responsible for heading up our Financial Services Indirect Tax practice – this involves working closely with the rest of the FS practice to highlight opportunities to reduce cost and manage risk for our FS clients and raise our profile within the sector.

Prior to joining RSM in 2013, John worked with a number of Big 4 firms working in London / Leeds and Edinburgh and before that a brief spell in HMRC working as a VAT Control Officer.

When asked what motivates him at work, John says:

I am motivated by resolving issues for clients and finding solutions to problems – I particularly enjoy resolving disputes with HMRC and  avoiding the Tribunal and reaching agreement through negotiation or by means of using the ADR approach.

Outside of work, John is a keen cyclist and enjoys getting outdoors.
