Chris Lee - Goringe AccountantsChris Lee has been retained by Goringe Accountants to offer specialist tax advice to its clients.

Chris specialises in advising SMEs and their owners on a wide range of issues, including tax efficient fundraising, business reorganisations and sales, and employee share incentives.

Chris trained with the Inland Revenue in the 1980s and went on to work for several medium and large accountancy practices (including Baker Tilly and James Cowper).

Nicky Goringe Larkin, Founder-Director of Goringe Accountants, comments:

Chris is an exciting addition to our team. By adding his specialist tax knowledge, we’re broadening and extending the service and advice we offer to our clients. He’s only been with us a couple of weeks and has already met with several clients who have benefited from his advice. I’m really enjoying working with Chris and he has easily fitted into the team.

Chris adds:

I’m very excited to be part of the portfolio of services that Goringe Accountants offers. I’m a business tax consultant, so my background fits in perfectly with the Goringe Accountants’ ethos of helping businesses grow. I get an enormous buzz out of helping new companies set up and structure themselves for maximum tax efficiency—I love seeing start-ups flourish and ‘fly’.

With decades of tax advisory experience and an extensive knowledge of current tax incentives, Chris will identify opportunities for Goringe Accountants’ clients to minimise their tax burden.

Chris clarifies:

Of course, this is absolutely nothing to do with tax avoidance; this is about making companies and their shareholders aware of the tax relief or credit that they’re 100% entitled to. Proper tax structures and planning can result in significant savings, which can mean the difference between success and failure.
