Tax, trusts and pensions in Scottish Bar

Ross Anderson at Ampersand Advocates has significant experience acting for HM Revenue and Customs in both the First-Tier and Upper Tribunals. He also appeared as appearing as a junior to Kieron Beal QC of Blackstone Chambers in London, again on behalf of the Revenue, in the Supreme Court case Frank A Smart & Sons v HMRC, which concerned the deductability of VAT incurred when purchasing entitlements to the Single Farm Payment, a European Union farming subsidy.

Axiom Advocates is well-regarded for its tax and trusts experience, with one client describing it as a 'first port of call' for instructions in this area, and another commenting that the set is 'building a good presence in the private client and trusts areas.'

Terra Firma Chambers is home to practitioners with experience in pensions and both corporate and personal taxation, including cases with an international element. Recent notable cases include Philip Simpson QC acting for the company in Taylor Clark Leisure plc v HMRC, a Supreme Court case concerning VAT grouping.
