Since studying Modern Languages at St Andrew’s University, I have gained over 20 years of private client tax experience in both the legal and accountancy professions. Private client tax work covers a wide range of matters, from the annual tax compliance requirements, through to very specific tax planning.

I spend a lot of time working with high net worth individuals, providing capital gains tax and inheritance tax planning. I also focus a lot on succession planning for owner managers of our commercial clients and looking at remuneration strategies. I work closely with clients in all of our sectors, but particularly the Legal Sector, Financial Services Sector and the Renewable, Land and Environment Sector.

I love the variety of my work. One day I can be visiting an Estate client in waterproofs and wellies and the next I’m speaking to a manufacturing client about benefits in kind. No two days are ever the same!

Outwith Scott-Moncrieff, I am a trustee of Remembrance Edinburgh, a member of the Edinburgh Tax Network, Treasurer of the St Margaret’s School for Girls Former Pupils Association and I sit on the Accounting Professional Advisory Group for Edinburgh Napier University.
