“I would like to thank Ann for all her support over the past few months in helping us understand the tax impact of the lease extension programme proposed by the Landlord.  I am very impressed with Ann’s expertise and her ability to get to the root of the problem by always being clear and specific but also being a constant source of support.  I would not hesitate to use Ann again or to recommend her to others.”

Ibolya Nemeth, Bob Books Ltd:

“Ann is one of the top lawyers in her field and we are all extremely grateful for her advice. She is a highly professional, intelligent and experienced tax lawyer and a great person to work with. I would have no hesitation to use Ann again and recommend her highly.”

Jo Summers, PWT Advice LLP:

“We use Ann for all our firm’s stamp duty queries. She’s always helpful, no matter how big or small the query might be. We have absolutely no hesitation recommending her services to clients, colleagues etc. Not only is she an expert, she provides great value for money too.”

Michael Leach, Consultant, Thrings LLP:

“Ann has a formidable grasp of her subject and delivers her advice in a calm and business-like manner”

Jon Squirrell, The Vault Gym:

“I run a personal training gym in the City of London. I am a small business owner and the sole director of The Vault Gym. Being a small business I do not have the support network that large gym chains possess and therefore rely on the advice of professionals like Ann to succeed.

The government set up the enterprise investment scheme (EIS) to help small business such as mine get on their feet. My business qualifies for the scheme and in fact the government even shows case studies of gyms working with EIS programs on their web site. Ann helped me apply for my EIS as the forms were so confusing for me, and she held my hand all the way. However neither of us in our wildest dreams could envisage the fight that would proceed to gain my EIS status.

Ann was fantastic and her commitment to me was very touching and a huge comfort to me at a very stressful time. Without exaggeration my company would not have financially survived this fight without Ann.  After two years, Ann’s superior knowledge of this country’s tax laws won through and I was granted my EIS. This saved me thousands of pounds as I was able to offer my investors the package I promised them two years earlier.

I now have a thriving business with over twenty personal trainers using my facility. All of whom would be out of a job if it was not for Ann, so from all of us at The Vault Gym, thank you Ann, you are truly a tax legend !”
