Tax Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Tax and specifically the payment of tax affect every business and individual, but navigating HMRC and its processes can be complicated. Our team have direct experience of working within HMRC and can help you reach a satisfactory agreement for your business and HMRC as well as helping you to build a solid working relationship going forward.

In recent years the tax authorities have become far more aggressive in collecting tax that they believe is payable. However, this aggressive approach is often unwarranted and our specialist team have been able to persuade HMRC of the correct treatment at an early stage. We know that most clients would far rather settle without recourse to the courts and that is always our first step, but when this does not succeed, we then litigate on behalf of our clients. We have experience of taking matters through all of the Courts including and up to the Court of Justice of the European Union.

Understandably, for many clients the prospect of tax litigation can be daunting, but we can help you prepare and present your cases. We can support our clients from initial conversations to advice on strategy and chances of success, through to drafting court documents and conducting cases before the Courts. We can also prepare witnesses to make giving evidence as stress free as possible.
