Richard started his career with HM Revenue and Customs in 1986, leaving after three years to enter private practice. In 2003, Richard became Partner in Mazars LLP, leading their tax practice across the North of England.
During his time with Mazars, Richard established and led their tax investigation practice, which gave him valuable insight into HMRC strategy and practice. He also acted for a large range of private individuals, and often their business interests too.
An expert in offshore pension structures, Richard is often asked to present on offshore structures and pensions. His breadth of knowledge of the UK tax system aligned to his experience in offshore planning is invaluable in his role with Trireme.
