Nicola qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1996 and moved to Clive Owen & Co in the same year as a senior auditor.
Having trained in a small local firm Nicola also wanted to develop her tax knowledge further and qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser in 1999. Nicola became a partner in 2002 having moved to the York Office in early 2000.
Due to the rapid growth of the Durham Office, Nicola returned to the North East in November 2006 to help grow the practice and in particular the tax role.
Nicola’s primary role is in tax planning as well as dealing with owner managed businesses many of whom treat tax minimisation as a priority. More recently Nicola has developed our R & D offering and now leads our team in conjunction with Teesside University on this.
She gives many talks and seminars across the region on how to take advantage of the tax breaks available for innovation.
