Nicholas had been leading the tax team at Duncan & Toplis for five years before being reappointed as Head of Tax. Over the years, Nicholas has worked closely with the tax teams and has advised a wide portfolio of clients, from agriculture businesses to private client cases.
Nicholas qualified as an accountant in 1990 and he quickly recognised the important and interesting role that tax played in his client’s businesses. He went on to qualify as a Chartered tax adviser so he could better support and empower business owners who wanted to stay on top of their tax planning as well as ever-changing legislation.
Since joining the team, Nicholas has encouraged the team to take ownership of their work and share their knowledge in order to work more efficiently and to better leverage the team's skills.
With the 2021 Budget Statement just around the corner, Our Head of Tax, Nicholas Smith reflects on the previous year and the impact of COVID-19, sharing his predictions for the year ahead.
