The Problem

Our expert witness service was called upon to help William, who had instructed an accountant to carry out work for him in the past. Many years later there was a dispute with HMRC, and William was asked to pay a large amount of tax, interest and penalties. This prompted him to launch legal action against his former accountant.

The Solution

Acting as expert witness in the case, our co-owner, Stephanie Churchill, considered the information. She then gave her opinion on whether the position taken by HMRC should have been established earlier and appropriate action taken. As a result, William was able to seek restitution in relation to interest and penalties that were paid to HMRC.
