Tax practitioner solving your difficult tax problems, business connector, freelance writer, blogger, aspiring photographer, radio amateur G4MCU
Introduction

I am a tax practitioner in the UK, which means that I help people find their way through the maze of rules and legislation which run to many thousands of pages on paper, though I keep my copies virtually of course to help save the trees.

Many people might think that tax is boring but to me it is fun. There is a lot more to it than filling forms. I won't explain why, but if you have a tax problem, why not ask me, take a weight off your mind and let me enjoy myself.

Of course I also review the tax affairs of the business and the owners if they wish to save themselves even more money! You don't have to have the whole menu. If you would like business advice without the tax bit, or the other way round, that's up to you, the client; that is if you are a client. Anyway, you should not try to save tax at the expense of your business. The tax tail should not wag the commercial dog.

I love helping businesses improve and make steps towards success and I have helped many different types or traders and professionals. I have a great network of professionals to support me. I don't know everything but I am bound to know someone who can help you. Just ask!

I write a lot for marketing purposes and in my blogs. Have a look at On Our Bikes. I am happy to write for others on their websites. You can have technical web copy, practical useful articles or my opinion, but I do expect to be paid for any marketing material of course.

I will be pleased to introduce you to anyone in my network if I think it would be useful, and can connect you to any specialist business adviser you need from the wide selection to whom I have access. Please don't try to sell to me, though.

I am making a come back on the photography scene and I am keen to learn from others what I have missed out on in my absence.

Let's connect and learn from each other!

Creationism is not just in the USA. Despite a much less religious and more secular environment in the UK there are creationist schools teaching flawed science to our young. 
Four UK universities recognise a qualification from creationist schools teaching that evolution is a hoax and electricity can be generated from snow

Hope you don't mind me asking a small favour - could you please share this link in the hope of finding some very sentimentally important property? Thank you!
On Friday 20th June 2014, our house in London E18 was burgled between 1pm and 2pm. It happens to a lot of people. We lost computers, jewellery, clothes, shoes, ties - the usual haul for opportunist thieves. However, several t...

The photo caption reads "MP for Conversation Dr Nick Smith..." Should we all have a Minister of Conversation?

Great project, though.
