Following nearly 4 decades working in various tax disciplines, Graham co-founded WTT to offer his deep experience and understanding of complex tax structures to those embroiled in tax enquiries.
Graham’s career in tax began in 1976 when he joined HM Revenue and Customs. This was followed by stints in private practice specialising in niche areas before moving to Barclays Group Tax in 1987 and securing his membership of the Chartered Institute of Taxation. In the 12 years there, he dealt with a range of issues from Gilts trading to sovereign debt provisioning to Executive remuneration. He also worked for a period in the leasing business which led to him joining the big-ticket leasing division of Royal Bank of Scotland in 2000. In 7 years there and post the leasing business being reorganized, he worked on devising products for the bank’s FTSE listed clients.
In 2007, a move to Future Capital Partners saw Graham returning to private practice. As part of a diverse portfolio of work, he structured a number of funds one of which focussed on renewable fuel.
Now, Graham focusses on developing robust and extensive tax policy for WTT and is regularly ask to comment for press and most recently the treasury select committee during an inquiry on HMRC’s powers and the Finance Bill. More recently Graham was awarded best forum adviser and best forum personality in the ContractorUK Awards.
