I am an HMRC dispute and investigation specialist. I help clients deal with complex tax investigations, compliance checks or make voluntary disclosures.
I have worked in tax since 2002 when I joined Ernst & Young's graduate tax programme. Before that I was a management accountant for a Lloyd's of London syndicate.
I have a deep understanding of HMRC's investigation powers, processes and penalties rules. I specialise in Contractual Disclosure Facility (CDF) under Code of Practice9 (COP9) for suspected tax fraud, Code of Practice 8 (COP8) investigations, but also deal with all HMRC compliance checks and disclosures to HMRC.
I aim to engage proactively with HMRC to ensure the taxpayer gets the best possible result, reducing the stress of the investigation for the taxpayer and their family, bringing the investigation to a conclusion as soon as possible, reducing the scope of the investigation and the final penalties, and give the taxpayer certainty going forward.
I am a Chartered Tax Adviser with the CIOT. I am a member of ICAEW's Tax Investigator Practitioners Group (TIPG).
