David has worked for Armstrong Watson since 2008, qualifying firstly as a member of the Association of Accounting Technicians in 2011, before progressing on to become an ICAEW Chartered Accountant in 2013 and a Chartered Tax Advisor with the CIOT in 2015.
David was the recipient of the Carter Prize for the highest mark in the June 2011 sitting of the ICAEW Financial Accounting Top-Up paper and was also awarded the Victor Durkacz medal for the highest mark in the May 2014 sitting of the CTA UK VAT, SDLT and IPT paper.
Initially David worked in the accounts and audit departments of Armstrong Watson, before moving across to tax in 2013 to become the dedicated VAT specialist for the firm.
Although based primarily in our Fairview House office, David regularly visits all of our other offices, advising clients on all aspects of VAT.
David, our VAT consultant was invaluable in helping us prepare for a VAT inspection. He checked all of our records with care and advised appropriately and answered queries with the VAT inspector on our behalf, saving me time and effort.
