After a career within the accountancy profession as a taxation specialist, Kevin became an independent consultant advising practitioners in 1980 and he continued this role as a self-employed consultant until 1995 when his practice was acquired by the Parmentier Arthur Group (at which point he became a director thereof). In 2000, Kevin became a tax partner in Devon-based chartered accountants Francis Clark and in 2003 he was invited to become an equity partner in the Bristol-based chartered accountancy practice of Solomon Hare LLP. Solomon Hare LLP became part of the Smith and Williamson group in May 2005.

Having written a number of tax guides over many years Kevin saw the opportunity to both write and publish a guide on CGT entrepreneurs’ relief when this measure was announced in 2008. Spurred on by the success of the entrepreneurs’ relief guide Kevin was encouraged to write a guide on the enterprise investment scheme (‘EIS ‘) in 2009.
Two new guides will be completed soon. The first focuses solely on the seed enterprise investment scheme (‘SEIS’) and which will be sold as a companion to the EIS guide.
The second new publication in 2018 addresses the tax issues arising on divorce but is written with a particular emphasis on individuals who are in business.
