Paul MakinDirector at Dales Evans
Paul graduated with a Maths degree from Leeds University in 1987. He then trained as an accountant with an independent accountancy practice in the East Midlands, qualifying in 1992.
On moving to London he gained further experience at several smaller accountancy firms before joining Dales Evans & Co Limited in 1998 as a manager. Paul has assisted the company’s growth from around a dozen staff to its present level of almost 50 people. In 2004 he became a director.
Dales Evans clients are almost entirely music based, and Paul has specialised in building a business management team that directly handles artists. He looks after all aspects of their operations, from worldwide touring through business and personal tax planning to cash management. This work involves prioritising compliance with all relevant financial reporting and tax matters, whilst providing clients and their management team with prompt reliable and relevant information.
Paul’s strengths lie in his ability to translate complex financial information into a format that artists understand, and that has meaning for them. Now working with a team of ten people he still manages to maintain a personal service and his approachability is valued by his clients.
