Contact information



Dave has 30 years’ experience in accounting, having trained at HMRC, before joining a top four firm. In 2003, Dave left his role as Head of Employment Tax at Deloitte Southampton, to set up a boutique practice with two former colleagues. This was later acquired by another major firm, BDO, where Dave was to become a Director; he joined Wilkins Kennedy in 2015.

Working collaboratively with companies’ directors and owner managers, Dave works with employers of all sizes to help them structure tax-efficient remuneration packages for staff members, and self-employed consultants. His deft handling of employment tax related issues results in reducing clients’ HMRC enquiries.

Dave is a keen music and sports fan. He holds a Southampton FC season ticket and enjoys playing football from time to time, as well as running and playing golf when he can. Dave has a grown up family.
