Jenny Tragner

Director

Jenny is a director at ForrestBrown and is responsible for in-house training and our quality assurance process. She also takes the senior management lead on any HMRC enquiries we handle for clients.

Jenny has a vast amount of R&D tax credit experience. She began her career at KPMG in 2002 where she gained her CA and ATT qualifications. With these under her belt she joined 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 existing tax knowledge by teaching the key technical and soft skills required to be an R&D specialist. In all that she does, Jenny plays a key role in maintaining ForrestBrown’s excellent relationship with HMRC.
