David lectures at UCLan part-time. For the rest of the week he is self-employed as a Chartered Tax Advisor. He worked for Inland Revenue/HM Revenue and Customs from 1986 to 2009.
David joined the Inland Revenue as a tax officer (higher grade) in 1986. This was meant to be a temporary job but somehow it took him more than 20 years to finally move on.
During his time with the Revenue, David worked as an investigator in Preston, Chorley and Liverpool - examining the accounts of local small businesses; as a technical inspector dealing with the personal tax affairs of the members of the 'Big 4' accountancy firms; and as a writer and editor of training materials.
