VAT Disputes

When advising our clients on VAT issues we recommend you make a concerted effort to comply with VAT obligations at all times and maintain good relations with the HMRC. However, disputes do arise from differing points of view, such as the entitlement to reclaim on costs; the value of a supply; the VAT liability of a product or service; or questions as to whether or not a product or service is supplied in the UK.  If you do find yourself in disagreement with HMRC on a VAT issue, expert legal guidance is essential.

Bright Line Law has a vast amount of experience in advising both business and individual clients on disputes with HMRC. Jonathan Fisher QC, leads our barrister-led practice, and is regularly instructed to act for clients accused of breaching anti-avoidance rules. He has previously been involved in advising on the use of, and regulatory investigation of film industry, and offshore tax schemes. We have also been instructed to represent clients in criminal and civil litigation initiated by HMRC.

We regularly work with other leading barristers and experts in the field of tax law - including forensic and chartered accountants, as well as professional tax advisors - to assist clients and deliver pragmatic solutions to legal problems. At Bright Line Law, our goal is to resolve regulatory issues quickly and provide a rigorous defence to accusations of violations of tax law.
