Tony joined Wilkins Kennedy as a Partner in 2011, following the merger of Wilkins Kennedy’s Amersham office with Casey Lester, a firm where he had practiced for more than 25 years, 11 of those as one of the Partners.
Tony is Head of the firm's Making Tax Digital group. His focus is on SMEs and owner managed businesses, with particular experience in the healthcare, technology, hotel & leisure, PR & marketing and design sectors.
He provides clients with a range of advisory services throughout the business cycle, from start-up through to business sale and succession planning, helping clients avoid business pitfalls and identifying tax planning opportunities. He is a strong advocate of clients sticking to their strengths – focusing on their business, leaving the compliance and routine tasks to specialists, such as the outsourced services offering provided by his colleagues.
Tony also has a wealth of experience in carrying out financial due diligence for business acquisitions and has been involved in several forensic accounting assignments.
Tony is a regular presenter at taxation seminars held across the North Thames region; he is also a member of the firm’s tax committee, providing both technical expertise and practical guidance.
A keen sportsman, Tony enjoys running, cycling, the occasional Duathlon, golf as well as following his beloved Chelsea FC and unwinds (and annoys his neighbours) with his less than impressive guitar playing.
