‘Simon McKie’s advice has always been technically exact, relevant and practical. The reason, however, that I value his advice very highly is because he is careful to ensure that I understand the application of the taxation provisions which are relevant to my affairs, any uncertainties there may be in that application and the alternative financial outcomes which are dependent upon those uncertainties. In this way I am equipped to make decisions based on an accurate assessment of probabilities.

In a long-running disagreement with HMRC, in which I was eventually entirely vindicated, Simon’s calm analysis allowed me to make objective decisions in a situation in which, at first, I felt as if I were at the mercy of an arbitrary, uncomprehending and overwhelmingly powerful adversary.’
