What can Neil do for you?

Neil is a partner in our corporate tax team. Neil heads our share incentives practice, which helps businesses use shares to incentivise, reward or retain employees in the most tax efficient way. Neil also helps companies raise growth funding tax effectively, and is a leading adviser on SEIS, EIS, VCTs or Social Investment Tax Relief.

Supporting your ambitions

On share incentives, Neil's recent work has including advising on delivering millions of pounds of value under share incentives arrangements as part of an IPO, on arrangements allowing option holders to participate in a multi-million pound sale, as well as implementing new growth share and option schemes for a number of unquoted and quoted clients. Neil has also helped fund manager clients navigate their way through recent changes to the tax rules for EIS and VCT investors, allowing them to continue to invest while ensuring the availability of tax relief and managing the risk that change inevitably brings.

Neil has been closely involved over recent years in the introduction and development of Social Investment Tax Relief, which has helped social enterprises (businesses which judge success both in terms of financial profit, and positive impact on society) to raise much-needed funding. Neil continues to work in promoting the tax relief to widen its take-up by UK social enterprises.
