Formative years spent as an accountant – CA – in both New Zealand and the UK. Then moved on to motherhood and studying economics before landing in Inland Revenue as a policy analyst. Found I liked the coalface more – until I didn’t. Four budgets at Treasury and now a final year back at the coal face at IRD. Am (or was) an international tax specialist. Have seen most things but will only talk about public stuff.

Currently on a gap year – having resigned from everywhere – while I work out what I am going to be when I grow up.

Not quite ready to give up tax so this blog will be my methadone programme. Posts on Monday – except when there aren’t.

Views wholly my own and absolutely NOT tax advice. Follow at your peril.
