Thomas Beswick


Position within firm – Tax Trainee

What do you do?

I work in the Tax department at Nicklins, assisting with the preparation of Personal Tax Returns, Corporate Tax Returns and other Tax related work. I manage a portfolio of clients ranging from self-employed individuals, landlords, investors and businesses.

What do you enjoy most about your job/ what motivates you to get up in the morning?

I enjoy working with an outstanding range of staff that help to provide an enjoyable working environment. Another aspect I like with Nicklins is the engagement in various charity and social events such as volunteering at local food banks and football tournaments against other firms which is great fun.

What motivates me to get out of bed every morning is my stomach calling for food. Scrambled eggs on toast does the job!

Honestly, I would say my main motivators are the opportunity to learn something new every day and to appreciate the world we have around us.

What projects do you work on?

Recently, I have been focusing on improving our communications to clients via OpenSpace with the Tax department in order to help reduce the Tax gap in line with Making Tax Digital.

What is on top of your bucket list?

I haven’t actually sat down and thought about a bucket list as such. I like the idea of completing something adventurous such as skydiving, wing walking or travelling solo. However, my main goal is to have a positive impact on as many lives as possible.
