Joshua specialises in indirect tax litigation on behalf of HM Revenue and Customs and taxpayers. He is regularly instructed in general VAT litigation, MTIC fraud litigation and excise litigation. Across this broad spectrum of work he specialises in VAT refusal to register and deregistration decisions as well as Alcohol Wholesale Registration Scheme and WOWGR authorisation decisions.
He is often instructed to appear in Administrative Court proceedings in tax disputes and was the barrister responsible for one of the leading decisions about the ability of HM Revenue and Customs to deregister taxpayers on the basis that they are using their VAT registrations for abusive purposes.
Alongside indirect tax litigation he also regularly appears in matters on behalf of the Department of Work and Pensions in respect of Personal Independent Payment decisions as well as Child Support matters in the Family Court.
