Meet Ben Lee

Ben considers himself fortunate to be in practice at a time our government is looking to digitalise tax, leading to a number of changes for many in the future. This combined with the growth of blockchain and smart contracts make him excited about the future, and lucky to have managed to fix that 086 on many occasions before he says his parents noticed, many years ago.

His role as a Director at PKF-Francis Clark allows Ben to draw on everything he has learned to date to advise individuals and businesses at all stages of their life cycle, strategically and tax efficiently. Over the years he's dealt with a number of different clients, from sole traders to listed companies operating a huge range of industries. Ben takes great pride in supporting clients to realise and achieve their ambitions.
