Sharon qualified as a Certified Accountant in 1992 whilst training with a small accountancy practice in Glasgow. She started her career in general practice working in all areas including accounts preparation, audit, personal tax, corporate tax and insolvency before specialising in corporate taxation.
Prior to joining French Duncan in 2015, Sharon worked in a top 10 accountancy practice as a senior tax manager specialising in corporate taxation. She has also worked in mid-tier practices and was a corporate tax manager in a Big 4 firm.
She has gained experience in dealing with clients in various industries and of varying sizes of businesses from sole trader to large groups and in her current role oversees the corporate tax compliance for the firm as well as providing business tax advisory services.
As part of her role Sharon oversees the tax compliance and advice for the various clubs, CASCs, mutual societies and charities which the firm represents. This includes working closely with clients and members of the corporate tax team to ensure that the basis on which the work is carried out is in line with current tax guidance, which can be complex at times.
She believes that the advice and work we carry out for clients should be relevant, proactive and delivered in a timely manner and is provided in a format that the client is able to follow which she also instils in her team.
