Having gained a degree in Fuel and Energy Engineering at Leeds University, Anthony went to London working for small and medium-sized accountancy firms, qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 1994 and as a Chartered Tax Adviser in 1998. Anthony met his wife, had two children then headed back up North, working as a tax adviser for KPMG. He became a senior tax manager with responsibilities in Manchester, Preston and Liverpool, undertaking large corporate and personal tax projects.
Anthony took the plunge in 2004 acquiring the practice with the aim of providing a quality service to quality clients. A wealth of tax and accounting experience ensures that Anthony knows when external help should be sort. What clients want is an accountant who acts as a sounding board, who offers good advice, who knows tax law and someone who recognises issues and knows how to help the client deal with them.
In his spare time, Anthony tries to keep fit by cycling, playing badminton and going to the gym.
Anthony is involved in a number of charities, the principal one being Fylde Coast YMCA, where he is Treasurer. Fylde Coast YMCA is a charitable organisation which hopes to provide opportunities to enable people and communities to achieve their full physical, social, cultural and spiritual potential. It has over 400 staff and operates gyms, swimming pools and provides education, training and housing to young and older people.
Anthony does not hide the fact that he believes social responsibility is important and is keen for staff to learn and develop their education.
Finally, other than his family, his other love is Liverpool Football Club. You can take him away from Liverpool but you can’t take away the Scouser in Anthony. He has had a season ticket since the age at the age of 12 and still has one now!
