Indirect Taxes

The team regularly advises a wide range of clients on value added tax, excise duties, customs duties, transfer taxes (stamp duties) and other incidental taxes. Given the pressure on tax revenues generally, indirect taxes are a popular way for governments to raise revenue. At Mishcon we have experts not just in indirect taxes but in the accompanying industries and sectors that go with them supported, if needed, by a team of litigators.

We have an unparalleled depth and expertise in not just what the rules say but why the rules say what they do say. This enables us to understand what is acceptable and not acceptable to HMRC in the context of restructurings for both family businesses and larger ones. As a result we ensure a holistic approach is adopted to make sure that you get the best advice in respect of inheritance tax, capital gains tax, stamp duty land tax charges and the annual tax on envelope dwellings (ATED).

Our indirect tax litigation team have experience of all levels of court from the tribunal to the European Court of Justice as well litigating at home and in Europe with the assistance of the European Commission.
