“We would like to thank you for your recent contribution to our continuing education programme by speaking at our meeting in Beaufield Mews. We received excellent feedback on your talk, which certainly provided a lot of food for thought for the attending GPs. No doubt you will be seeing some of them for further advice.”

“Ken, I am deeply grateful to you for your considerable advice and knowledge on my affairs. You have a wonderful – but a very scarce – capacity to make the complex simple. Your ability to communicate is exceptional and I feel privileged to have met you.”

“Tax is such a necessary topic for GPs and Practice Managers, and yet all so often we avoid it or approach it with great trepidation. The best way to dispel this anxiety is to listen to advice you can trust, so you know what to do and when to do it. Ken’s experience with General Practice means he knows exactly which areas of taxation are relevant to General Practices and as a Chartered Tax Adviser he knows exactly what needs to be done to save tax.   Ken’s presentation at the Annual National Meeting explained in a no-nonsense manner how to ensure you are maximising your profits and minimising your tax. His practical approach and question and answer style made the session engaging and memorable. The feedback from the day was that Ken’s advice would deliver a real benefit to GP Practices”.
