Mark joined us as a VAT consultant in 2016 from HMRC where he was a Higher VAT Compliance Officer with 12 years’ experience, providing expert advice across multi-disciplined tax teams and specialising in cross-tax investigations.
Mark has a deep understanding of the law and practical implementation of it across all areas of VAT. His previous role allows him to take a well measured approach to providing clear VAT advice as well as the confidence and authority to deal with all departments within HMRC. Since joining the firm he has shown how invaluable his previous experience is, having resolved long standing disputes on the behalf of clients and secured the closure of enquiries with outstanding results within short periods of time. Mark also advises the food and drink industry and provides guidance to ensure that the correct VAT liabilities are applied and secures HMRC agreement in complex cases.
As well as assisting clients during HMRC enquiries Mark has a particular interest in the food and drink sectors, land and property, charities, education and retail. When assisting clients he is driven to ensure that the treatment is right and then works with our clients to make things better.
