I aim to provide friendly, high quality, practical advice using common sense and plain English. I advise on many aspects of financial management, helping clients of widely differing financial resources and of all ages, providing guidance to individuals and directors on pensions, protection, tax efficient investment and Estate Planning.

The foundation of my business is building long term relationships with my clients, realising that everyone and their circumstances are unique and deserve a bespoke service.

Begbies Traynor Group

Begbies Traynor Group has been helping businesses facing financial difficulties in the North East from our Aberdeen office for over 8 years. We pride ourselves on offering an independent, unbiased view on the options open to directors/business owners as they navigate through difficult financial times.

Focused on SMEs and with experience across almost all sectors, Simon Watson and Thomas McKay (both chartered accountants) are the local partners responsible for Aberdeen/North East and they bring over 30 years experience in the restructuring / insolvency space.

We appreciate that every business is unique and we can review your position and give advice on the realistic options available and work with you to make sure the outcome is the best possible for you and your business.

We also offer a competitive solvent liquidation service whereby you can close your business and take advantage of favourable tax relief.

Begbies Traynor is the largest independent restructuring/insolvency specialist in the UK.  Stock market listed with 40+ office throughout the UK (4 in Scotland), we are proud to work closely with Carnegie Knox in the provision of services to clients and would be happy to talk to you confidentially about your current position

Jumpstart

Jumpstart is the largest and fastest growing R&D tax relief specialist in the UK, providing consultancy services to companies from £1m to £2bn across the full range of commerce and industry.

We provide a unique blend of technological and business expertise to guide companies through the complexities of submitting claims to HMRC.

We believe that companies get the best results by using people who actually understand the science of what they do. That’s why our analysts come from many scientific backgrounds enabling them to identify eligible activity and then translate very technical information into meaningful reports that are relevant to HMRC’s R&D guidelines.

Working together with accountants, Jumpstart finds and maximises the client’s eligibility while accountants utilise its tax benefit. We always complement rather than compete. Jumpstart has consistently found eligibility in processes in companies that have struggled to understand the legislation.

We are proud to be different, and justifiably so – our approach has allowed us to make strong, successful claims for many companies who were previously advised that they were ineligible, or which had greatly underestimated the extent of their eligibility.
