Jenny is a director at ForrestBrown and leads our technical approach on all aspects of R&D tax credits.

She began her career at KPMG in 2002 where she gained her CA and ATT qualifications before joining their R&D team in 2007. In 2013 she moved to a consultancy practice where she led a team of R&D tax specialists. At the same time, she was recommended to HMRC’s R&D Consultative Committee – a seat she has held ever since. She joined ForrestBrown in 2015.

Jenny founded our Learning Lab as a structured training programme for new joiners, and a way of delivering continued professional development for all staff. For our team, it builds upon their formal tax qualifications by teaching the key technical and soft skills required to be an R&D tax specialist.

In 2020 Jenny initiated the CIOT working group that drafted the PCRT guidance for R&D tax credit advice.

Through her work, Jenny plays a key role in maintaining ForrestBrown’s excellent relationship with HMRC.
