This week we are looking at what Tom Moore has been up to working overseas.
Where you've been for the last year?
I moved to London following some time travelling in Asia and have been here ever since,
A highlight or two about the past year.
The highlight is definitely my new job as an R&D Tax Consultant. The UK, like most OECD nations, has an innovation incentive for businesses by offering tax relief for research and development (R&D) projects. My work involves meeting with C-level executives, chief engineers, software developers, chemists, or whoever is carrying out R&D. I then get to analyse their projects and figure out the costs that qualify the business for tax relief.
Where you're going to be next year?
I'll still be here - in London.
What you want to do long term?
I'm loving what I do but I can't keep away from NZ for much longer. Ours is the best place in the world. I'd love to come home and work in a similar role with Callaghan Innovation or another research institute.
