Tom is an ATT qualified tax professional who trained at a Big Four firm and brings more than a decade of experience to the team. At ForrestBrown, he is a director and leads client-facing teams in ForrestBrown’s R&D tax practice.
Before joining us in 2016, Tom was part of the global mobility team at PwC. There, he worked with a range of clients from small companies seeking growth to large multinationals. He also helped organisations manage tax and compliance risks when sending staff overseas or into the UK.
Tom originally joined us as a tax manager, before progressing to director in 2022. One of the first people to graduate from the ForrestBrown Learning Lab, Tom now leads teams that support companies in preparing R&D tax relief claims to achieve the full benefit of their investment in innovation.
The role means he can help businesses maximise the impact of their R&D claims by giving them access to a fantastic multi-disciplinary team. This requires building long-term relationships with clients to understand their needs and provide clear, practical and timely advice, helping to free up capital so clients can take R&D to a commercialisation phase.
