My aim is to make your experience investing in the UK as smooth as possible by working out an efficient plan - whether you act for a company expanding into the UK, seek to streamline your compliance process, or relocate with your family here.

It has given me great satisfaction throughout my career to help people and businesses from the Asia Pacific region to establish and invest in the UK.

I joined Blick Rothenberg in November 2018 to set up our China Business Group, having previously worked for a Big-4 and Top-6 firm. During my twelve years in practice, I have always carried out a dual role of tax advisor and client liaison officer for those new to the UK.

I now work closely with our award-winning team of leading tax and accountancy experts to provide a holistic offering for international businesses and high-net-worth individuals.

My primary focus is personal tax advisory and compliance work for non-domiciled individuals, including expatriates, business travellers, high-net-worth families and entrepreneurs. I can clarify and explain the UK tax system in a way that feels familiar to my clients, ensuring that the tax planning is carried out efficiently, either from the employer or individual perspective.

My role expands into the overall coordination of accounting and tax services for companies and entrepreneuers setting up in the UK. I understand the barriers that Asian Pacific businesses often face when establishing their presence in the UK, and can help by adding an extra layer of support to bridge the cultural and language gaps.

Our extensive business community network also means that we can provide value-added support to clients who seek like-minded advisors in other professional fields, to enable their growth and expansion in the UK and beyond.

Specialist areas

  • Expatriate and employment tax
  • Taxation of non-UK domiciled individuals
  • Set up your business in the UK
  • Non-domiciled individual’s wealth and succession planning
  • Property tax

Qualifications and positions of note

  • Chartered Tax Advisor (CIOT)
