David has advised on Capital Allowances since 2000 covering property developments and acquisitions across all sectors with particular emphasis on shopping centres, retail, office, hotels and portfolio reviews.
Projects advised on range from £300m single asset acquisitions and £1bn portfolios on behalf of institutions, REITS, private equity firms and overseas investors to £50,000 refurbishments on behalf of an individual investor.
David’s specialism is creating innovative ways to improve efficiencies in the claim process to meet tight client deadlines and improve future capital allowances reporting to HMRC.
He developed the first Capital Allowances document in the country to fulfil the clients reporting requirements within an Authorised Contractual Scheme (ACS), taking into account all new property additions, disposals and future capex spends on a daily basis for each unit holder.
David regularly presents on Capital Allowances at the RICS, to branches of the Institute of Financial Accountants and in-house to lawyers, investment agents and clients. He is also in regular contact with HMRC on current and future legislation changes and issues.
Out of the office David enjoys travelling, many sports, including following Man City, and keeping fit doing Crossfit.
