My day to day focus is on minimising tax risk and exposure for corporate and individual clients on a myriad of contentious matters which are, or could be, the subject of HM Revenue & Customs investigations.
As a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser, I previously headed up the national tax dispute resolution team for a Top 10 firm.
I have extensive investigations and compliance experience, plus all the technical and procedural knowledge to provide highly effective enquiry management services, client support and representation. Cases are often referred to me by other accountancy practices lacking this area of expertise.
The range of issues I am asked to advise on includes any matters where there are unresolved issues with HMRC such as tax enquiries, tax investigations, tax disclosures (prompted and unprompted) and increasingly what is becoming known as tax dispute resolution.
Much of my work involves challenging HMRC decisions, an area where I have an excellent success rate, not only ensuring initial verdicts are reversed but often obtaining costs on behalf of my clients too.
