Ben’s focus is on providing sensible, clear advice that helps clients achieve their goals both in the short and longer terms.  His dual qualification in accounting and taxation allows him to advise his clients holistically on all of their affairs, both personal and business.  He has committed his career to the firm and this has enabled him to build a number of long term relationships with his clients.
