Claire is our Head of Tax Technical and Development and responsible for ensuring the continued development of the tax team, both in the UK and overseas.
Claire started her career in tax in 2005, after responding to an advert in a local paper. After having worked in local firms and having successfully completed her membership requirements for the Association of Taxation Technicians, she moved to BDO, where she focused her attention on private client taxation. Claire worked specifically on high-net-worth clients, their families, and Trusts. Getting to know the individuals, building a successful working relationship, and understanding their wishes, drove her passion for helping others and providing high levels of client service. In 2012 Claire was accepted as a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation. Shortly after this she began working closely with Zoe Harris and expanding her knowledge to internationally mobile individuals, advising on areas such as residence, domicile, and remittance. To support this area of expertise, in 2013, Claire achieved the Society of Trust and Estate practitioner’s advanced certificate in International Taxation for UK clients.
Outside of work
Claire loves to travel, socialise, and generally spend time having fun with family and friends. When sufficient time allows between catering to the entertainment needs of her toddler daughter and bulldog puppy, you will find her giving a new life to an unloved cabinet, having developed a keen interest in interior design in recent years, or sampling the latest offerings of wine farms around the Sussex countryside.
