Area of expertise:

Audit; technology businesses; general business advice for owner managed businesses and the business owner

Steve is an audit specialist and he acts as Audit Director within the firm. With 32 years’ experience, he joined Shaw Gibbs in 1994 and is a Fellow of the ICAEW. 

Steve specialises in advising on issues such as audit, accounting, tax, R&D Tax Relief and business advisory matters. He helps clients to understand their business and personal objectives, along with reaching satisfactory solutions that take into account any tax implications.

He works with clients within his portfolio, as well as some fellow partners’ clients, across a range of sectors, but he has particular experience and expertise in areas such as telecoms, I.T., green energy and bioscience. He has a strong related network of contacts including the local academic and professional communities.

A technology fan, Steve ensures that the Shaw Gibbs audit team uses a paperless office approach to its work and is always looking for ways in which technology can help maximise revenue and efficiency both in house and for clients.

A keen advocate of the team approach, he ensures that if clients need advice on other specialist areas, they are introduced to colleagues who can provide the support and high levels of service they require.

Whenever he has the opportunity, Steve enjoys cycling, walking in the Lake District, and while closer to home, he is chairman of his local amateur dramatic group and can be found taking to the stage twice a year.
