Interesting EBT company insolvency case

Didn't find your answer?

See para 280 et seq. Looks like the right decision to me.

So tax avoidance does pay.

Interesting how BDO repeatedly described their tax advice as "robust" and yet the courts have effectively said that tax advisers cannot be robust about complex tax advice without a risk of a client negligence claim (if they're wrong) and must now give a tax risk warning in such cases to avoid that (which in turn is unhelpful for the client vis-à-vis HMRC in cases like this)!

Here's the firm who took this on and lost. Notably it's not on their website news section. https://www.griffins.net/

Painful for them if they were on a conditional fee.
