Jason has over 20 years’ experience working exclusively in indirect taxes (VAT, import duty, SDLT) with owner-managed businesses, corporates and not for profit sectors. He particularly enjoys challenging HMRC decisions, representing clients in tribunals or during inspections.
Experience includes land and property, partial exemption and European VAT matters but equally happy with a VAT registration too. VAT and duty is a complicated subject, his main strength is being able to explain complex law in an easy-to-understand manner. It has often been said that he actually makes the subject of VAT sound interesting, but we will let you be the judge of that! In his spare time, cycling, regular (but not obsessive) trips to the gym, skiing in winter and hiking in the summer and is married with one teenage daughter.
