Accountant

Jack Allen

I work with a portfolio of accountancy and personal tax clients, advising on how best to minimise their tax liabilities whilst ensuring they remain compliant with Companies House and HMRC. I have recently become involved in our Patent Box offering as well. In a time before Covid, I was the Chief Fire Warden, and in a less official but equally important capacity, chief spider-catcher, and lifter of heavy objects. I’m in a client-facing role, so I strive to not only meet, but exceed the client’s expectations, and to deliver the best possible experience to them. If I can come up with a solution to a problem they have, while allowing them to focus on running their business, I will see it done.

My best experience at MPA so far…

Working with like-minded individuals who are willing to put in a shift to get things done. The company has always thrown a good party as well!

Hobbies and interests:

Bit of a nerd really! I only read non-fiction, typically high fantasy. Huge fan of The Lord of the Rings, A Song of Ice and Fire, His Dark Materials, Sword of Truth etc. A self-confessed Sony fanboy when it comes to videogames as well (sorry Nintendorks!)

Big fan of films, with the MCU speaking to my inner nerd greatly. #thanosdidnothingwrong

Despite all that, I do occasionally see sunlight. I also like traveling, working out, driving, football and F1, and trying the biggest burger on the menu at a new restaurant. The best I’ve had was probably from the Rainbow Room in NYC, but you just never know when that next best one will come along!
