What I like about my job

Alex greatly enjoys the challenge of simplifying the tax system into a way clients can understand, and helping them to alleviate the stress of tax compliance. He builds strong professional relationships with his clients, and this enables him to tailor advice and tax planning to their specific situations and plans.

Interests outside work

Outside of work, Alex has two main passions - motorsport and football. With the latter, he greatly enjoys supporting his favourite team - Chelsea FC - each week.
