Patrick Collins


Tax Director

‘I find working closely with a variety of clients extremely fulfilling, especially when they see me as their ‘trusted advisor.

I have been a private client practitioner since 2003 and joined Hamlyns in October 2022. I have previously worked across a range of top 10 and boutique firms over the last 20 years and feel this exposure has provided me with a high level of expertise to service our clients with their taxation requirements.

With a varied client base, I advise both UK and non-UK domiciled individuals on all areas of their personal UK tax affairs. I have a particular interest in advising on CGT in relation to property and more recently crypto currencies.

The UK tax system remains complicated, and therefore it is important to me that my clients see me as their ‘trusted advisor’, knowing that I will do my best to give them advice that is not only correct, but works best for them.

I am a member of The Association of Taxation Technicians.

Away from the office, I’m generally taking my very talented three children to their various clubs/academies. When I have a spare moment to myself, I will get out for a run or enjoy a podcast and/or a boxset.
