Chartered Tax Adviser with Big Four background, specialising in HMRC investigations for nearly 20 years including COP9/CDF, COP8, WDF, RTC, compliance checks & disclosures.
I am a partner at Watt Busfield Tax Investigations. I have a deep understanding of HMRC's investigation powers, processes and penalties rules. I specialise in
- Contractual Disclosure Facility (CDF) under Code of Practice 9 (COP9) for suspected tax fraud,
- Code of Practice 8 (COP8),
- Worldwide Disclosure Facility (WDF),
- Requirement to Correct (RTC) / Failure to Correct (FTC),
- other HMRC compliance checks and
- voluntary disclosures to HMRC.
I aim to engage with the inspectors to bring the investigation to a conclusion as soon as possible, reducing the scope of the investigation and the final penalties, and to give the taxpayer certainty going forward.
I am a Chartered Tax Adviser with the CIOT and have worked at Ernst & Young, Alvarez & Marsal Taxand UK and as a management accountant for a Lloyd's of London Syndicate.
I am a member of ICAEW's Tax Investigator Practitioners Group (TIPG).
