Head of Buzzacott's award-winning Tax Investigations and Dispute Resolution team, bringing a unique understanding of the inner workings of HMRC to the advantage of my clients.
Mark is the Head of Buzzacott's award-winning Tax Investigations and Dispute Resolution team. He is a recognised expert in all contentious tax matters, having served in all of HMRC’s elite investigation offices as a Senior Tax Inspector and accredited Financial Investigator.
Mark brings a unique understanding of HMRC to the advantage of Buzzacott’s clients, resulting in more efficient handling of HMRC enquiries and, for those who have any irregularities, minimising unnecessary tax, interest and penalties and, in the most serious cases, avoiding criminal investigation and the confiscation of assets.
He consults and communicates directly with HMRC Policy on its current and future enforcement and compliance work, thus shaping HMRC’s approach to tackling tax avoidance and evasion. Mark serves on the Compliance & Investigations Committee of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) Tax Faculty and the Executive Committee of the Tax Investigation Practitioners Group (TIPG). He also represents the ICAEW and TIPG on HMRC’s Fraud Forum, which enables representatives of relevant HMRC directorates to consider and consult with representative bodies on policy and operational issues affecting HMRC’s approach to tax fraud.
"With 30 years’ experience working in the industry - most of it spent at HMRC, my clients come to me because they want someone who understands the inner workings of HMRC, has a strategy and solution for their unique needs, gets results and puts their fears to rest."
