Paul is a business services partner working across our Bristol and Taunton offices having joined PKF Francis Clark in June 2019 after 22 years with a Top 10 firm in Bristol.  A Chartered Tax Adviser he has a vast experience of working with businesses of varying sizes from start-ups and owner-managed businesses through to large corporates.

With a keen interest in looking after the business, personal and corporate tax affairs of owner-managers, in several cases he now supports the third generation, having looked after the parents, children and grandchildren over a 30-year period as well as the companies. On a larger scale, his tax experience means that he also deals with the complex corporate tax affairs of several high profile clients, including AIM-listed businesses.

Paul’s primary work as a client partner is to oversee the delivery of high quality advice and services to new and existing clients and his own client base is predominantly in the wider Somerset, Bath and Bristol area but there are also a number further afield, including several large London and Midlands based corporates. Working closely with his business services team, Paul leads the local full back office and compliance outsourcing offering to clients, such as subsidiaries or listed companies where group auditors are conflicted from such work. With a close interest in Property and Construction matters he also oversees for the firm CIS Gross Payment and Employment Status challenges from HMRC, together with advising those seeking technical assistance or guidance around property matters, such as structuring and capital allowances.

Paul heads up our Bristol office and in addition to his client work this position involves coordinating the offering of our specialist tax, accounts, audit, corporate finance and other services in that area, as well as continuing the firm’s growth strategy in the local marketplace – a challenge he relishes. He has written numerous taxation articles published by local and national press and is married with two children living in Keynsham, on the outskirts of Bristol. As a keen sports fan, when time and family permit he can be found at local football grounds around the South West, supporting the local non-league club that he played for in his younger days.
