AMA Ground rules
This will not be an opportunity for companies or individuals to sell their services or products. There will be no self-promotion as I feel it goes against the nature of this sub. The AMAs are therefore effectively anonymous. Mods will have confirmed that the host is qualified/employed as they claim.
Do not ask for personal advice or professional services
Keep it civil and allow the AMA host to answer questions
Please note that I will not (and cannot) provide advice specific to your circumstances via an AMA on Reddit, so do not misinterpret any answers as such. If you are thinking of making any decisions off the back of any answers listed here by myself or otherwise, please consult with a qualified accountant or tax advisor. Any answers I do provide are general as I do not know all of the circumstances that affect your situation and may therefore be wrong.
I graduated from University with a BA (Hons) in Accounting in before joining a Big Four accounting firm on their tax graduate scheme and qualified as a Chartered Accountant (ICAS) and Chartered Tax Advisor (CIOT). While there I rotated between Corporate Tax, Personal Tax, and International Tax for Corporates. A couple of years later I moved to an in-house Tax Planning role for a multi-national enterprise. Since then I have established my own accountancy practice offering services to contractors, small businesses, and pilots.
The AMA will be open all day and I will try to continue answering any follow-ups for the rest of the week. I'll try to answer a batch at 1pm and then again after 6pm
