Will Smart

Partner – Accountant

Will has remained in general practice since, and returned with his team and clients to Cottons as a partner in 2017. Will has looked after many of his larger clients for over 10 years.

Will's key aims are to assist small business owners and taxpayers in driving profitability and reducing tax: Through careful planning and a practical approach, he aims to increase wealth generation and retention. His particular interests include countering the current Government’s tax attacks on small owner-managed businesses and residential landlords.
