We are delighted to welcome Dr David Jones to our tax team, to be based in Abingdon but mobile across the whole catchment. David will work with our existing Tax team to expand the scope and capacity of tax services the firm is pleased to be able to offer, with particular emphasis on the Abingdon, Oxford and Reading areas of the Thames Valley.

David brings a wealth of tax expertise with him from both HMRC (as an Inspector in the ‘90s) and practice, be it for boutique advisory firms or the biggest global tax advisers.

David remarked: “I was very impressed by the commitment of the partner and director team here at Ross Brooke from the moment I met them. They have a vision to provide accessible, technical excellence to all their clients, particularly in the OMD and SME marketplace.  I fully share that view. I have been based in Oxfordshire now for 30 years and firmly believe that the real value proposition offered by Ross Brooke can enable us and our clients to grow and thrive. My particular areas of experience, especially for technology-based businesses, are Employee share plan design, accessing the suite of Enterprise and Venture Capital tax reliefs available; R&D tax claim optimisation and helping Entrepreneurial clients grow and ultimately sell their businesses. I cannot think of a better place to offer these services – within minutes of the Oxford, Milton and Reading innovation centres, and yet minutes from home!  Our team can offer excellence in accounting, audit and tax services, but at a fraction of the cost you’d pay in the bigger conurbations”.

The firm plans for David to develop and offer our “E-Suite” offering to all clients and prospects, not least in the bio, pharma and spin-out sectors in which David has a particular interest – his academic research in the 80s, was on T-Cells and immune response, which couldn’t be more topical. But as he says, “while I love getting to know the technical ins and outs of research-based business, even better is getting the ambitious client an excellent tax-answer and outcome”.

When he’s not “E-Suiting” or locked-down, David is flying his Piper Warrior, or pursuing game fish in the more rugged bits of the UK – so there is always lots to talk about – why not Zoom or call him, for a free initial chat to see how Ross Brooke can help?
