One of the key business growth areas for us in recent years has been in taxation.

Fawcetts have a team of extremely experienced tax advisers. With increased complexity particularly in the areas of inheritance tax, trust planning and value added tax we have added additional strength to our team with the appointment of Peter Dawson, a senior tax professional.

Peter began his career working for HMRC before moving to KPMG and comes to us with over 30 years of experience in dealing with all aspects of UK taxation. Pete’s ability to solve complex problems involving any number of taxes together with his strong commercial perspective makes him a rare talent and one we are delighted to have with us.

Sally Bennetts has recently joined us to further help manage the growth in this area of our business. Sally is a senior tax professional, a member of the Federation of Tax Advisers and a member of the Association of Taxation Technicians. Sally has a strong background in tax compliance and a proven track record in dealing with HMRC enquires. She is a keen sailor and in addition to her work with us runs an equine therapy charity.

Finally, our tax team has been further strengthened in recent months with the appointment of Anthony Rice as a trainee. Anthony joined us in August having previously completed a successful work experience stint. Anthony is currently studying AAT at Wiltshire College and having just recently passed his level 3 exams, he is now embarking on his final year.
