Eve trained firstly as a scientist and then as a tax accountant. She holds a First Class Masters degree in Chemistry from the University of St Andrews, where she specialised in solid oxide fuel cells and biofuels. After graduating in 2013, she joined the EY Cambridge' tax team, where she trained as a Chartered Accountant, qualifying in 2016. Eve then undertook her Chartered Tax Advisor training and qualified as a CTA in 2018. Her role at EY involved the organisation and management of the annual corporation tax compliance cycle for her clients. This included current and deferred tax calculations under FRS 101 and FRS 102, for inclusion in statutory accounts, the preparation of Corporation Tax computations, R&D claims, Patent Box claims, Controlled Foreign Company analysis, interest restriction analysis, advice on Tax Strategy, Senior Accounting Officer, Country by Country Reporting, restructuring and resolving HMRC enquiries. Eve’s client base at EY was mainly UK groups and US inbounds in the R&D, recycling and technology sectors.
The next step in Eve’s career was to join the in-house corporation tax team for a global pharmaceutical company where she worked on the UK corporation tax compliance as well as tax provisions for the quarterly financial reporting.
Eve’s drive to combine her scientific and tax technical expertise led her to join Fiscale in June 2019, as our R&D Tax Manager. Eve enjoys understanding all the interesting projects our clients are undertaking and being able to support their businesses using R&D and Patent tax reliefs.
