Daryl Smith (Kings Lynn)

Daryl joined the King’s Lynn office in 2006, fresh out of a Business Management degree, and his accountancy career has developed over the years to the point that he now has a wide-ranging portfolio of clients from all different types of industries. These clients vary from corporate SME’s to sole traders giving Daryl a wide range of experience. Given his technical nature, Daryl likes nothing more than undertaking some detailed tax planning or analysis of financial results to best advise clients on their past performance and how to get the most out of their business going forward. Daryl is also a member of the firm’s Construction Specialism Group. Outside of work Daryl enjoys spending time with his family, including two young sons, and just about manages to find some time to squeeze in some running and gaming.
