Tracey Watts


Tracey Watts is a Chartered Tax Adviser and Partner at Albert Goodman. Over the last 25 years, Tracey has gained invaluable insight into the particular challenges faced by owner-managed businesses.

Tracey specialises in corporate tax compliance and consulting, with a particular emphasis on business reorganisations and transactions. She also advises clients on how to maximise claims such as capital allowances, and research and development tax allowances. Tracey has also developed a specialism in research and development tax claims, which are available to all businesses rather than just those that are science or technology-focused.

With a strong practical accounting background, Tracey leads Albert Goodman’s Tax Investigations group. In this role, she helps clients navigate their way through an investigation by HM Revenue & Customs, and ensures that they are treated fairly and within the law. Tracey Watts also advises a wide range of businesses and is experienced in dealing with professional partnerships.

Tracey provides Albert Goodman budget updates and has become well known in Taunton and the surrounding area for being able to interpret and give expert analysis of a budget on the day of release.

Outside of work, Tracey’s loves chocolate and dislikes being cold. Her two sons keep her busy at all times!
