Established in 2008.

Palmer & Cook was founded in 2008 by independent chartered tax advisor Sean Palmer (BSc Econ, ATT, CTA) and has offices in Bristol and London.

As an ex-Inspector of Taxes and former Ernst & Young manager, Sean has spent more than 20 years working on both sides of the tax industry, at one time leading HMRC investigations and at others defending clients against them.

Sean is a highly-regarded tax consultant and during his career he has helped minimise the tax liabilities of private individuals and small and medium-sized (SME) business through to FTSE 100 and Blue Chip companies.

This experience has left Palmer and Cook uniquely qualified in being able to provide tax advice and resolve tax problems in a way which can withstand the intense scrutiny of HMRC.
