Highly approachable VAT and Customs expert with national and international coverage

I am a Chartered Tax Advisor specialising in VAT and Customs Duties, and tax investigation defence, working with firms of accountants, small and large, solicitors, and direct with businesses and individuals. Basically everyone!

As well as consultancy and advisory work, I am regularly involved in appeals and investigation work and will vigorously fight a client's corner to get the very best possible outcome. My success in this regard is well reflected in my results in over 20 years in practice. I resolve most cases before they progress all the way to a Tax Tribunal, but in terms of those cases which do go to litigation, my success rate is over 80%.

I am a regular contributor to the International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation, in Amsterdam, where I am the author of the UK Chapter of VAT in Europe.

I enjoy solving property and construction challenges, and also international VAT issues, and getting the very best outcome for clients.

Personal Interests

I love the outdoor life, conservation, gardening etc. and have a menagerie including assorted dogs, goats, an aviary and  free range poultry, as well as a small nature reserve.
