Brexit and the legal implications for businesses

John is a consultant who has joined from HM Revenue & Customs where, as a policy and technical adviser, he worked closely, over nearly ten years, with senior industry representatives and committees, regulatory bodies and HM Treasury and Ministers, to develop tax legislation relating to collective investment schemes and their investors.

He has taken the lead on a wide variety of legislative changes enhancing the UK's competitiveness as a centre for asset management, domicile of funds and investment companies. In particular, he led the work in connection with the introduction of the UK’s tax transparent funds regime and the tax elements of the UK Investment Management Strategy, both of which have been actively supported by the investment management industry, while continuing his work with his HMRC operational colleagues to resolve customer issues.

John is one of our specialist Brexit advisers. Contact him for more information on how Brexit may affect your tax funds.

VAT and indirect tax

Within: VAT and indirect tax

Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP's VAT group is noted for its 'good business acumen' in disputes and advisory matters. The practice is jointly headed by David Jervis and recovery claims expert Giles Salmond, and includes contentious tax specialist Stephen Yates. The team acted for Lookers, which is pursuing a claim against HMRC for compound interest payable on VAT over-payments in relation to historic car dealership bonuses. In another standout recovery claim, it continues to represent MG Rover Group in a case which was successful before the First-tier Tribunal and is now before the Upper Tribunal. On the non-contentious side, Camilla Spielman and John Buckeridge advised the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) on the application of VAT on services used by the LGPS Fund, securing a VAT exemption.
