Solicitor (white collar crime specialist): Potential Tax Prosecution Dropped!  “We engaged Paul to help with the tax and accounting investigation issues of a business client who had been arrested by the Crime Team of HMRC’s Criminal Investigation unit. Paul carried out a detailed analysis of the business books and the proprietor’s private records. He also liaised with 3rd parties, and prepared information from which we were able to obtain witness statements. He produced a detailed report of his findings, which we were then able to serve on HMRC. As a direct result of these representations, HMRC dropped the criminal charges. In the circumstances, this was a remarkable result. The client of course, was both extremely relieved and happy with this outcome. I've worked with Paul on number of cases now, and can attest to his excellent technical knowledge, and his thorough understanding of HMRC’s mindset. I wouldn't hesitate to use Paul’s services again in any HMRC criminal investigations.  Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert" David Roy, Cartwright King, Birmingham, via linked in, 7 August 2014

Although my case was very complicated and long winded, I was pleased with the result you obtained for me in dealing with my LDF disclosure with HMRC. I would  not hesitate in recommending you to anyone  I know who may require your specialist services. Many thanks again. Kind regards". L.F. Kent 18 July 2014

We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have been able to deal with someone so efficient, courteous and understanding." Chris and Alan B. Ilkeston, 15 May 2014

Expatriate Professional: Unprompted Disclosure : “Dear Gemma, It is great to hear from you and the news you send is absolutely excellent.  Nice piece of work on your part--thank you.  Thank you for helping me to get closure on this.  It has been wonderful to work with you (and by extension Paul of course)”.

Accountant Referral: Business Tax Enquiries"Paul has successfully defended an HMRC enquiry for us, into whether two companies were associated for corporation tax purposes.

Accountant Referral: Personal Tax enquiry:  "A tax enquiry arose on one of our clients, where the Revenue were seeking to prove that a loss making business was not a trade and was not being run on a commercial basis.

With only one letter (albeit 11 pages long!) the Revenue conceded the case. Paul was highly professional in face-to-face meetings with the client and used his excellent technical knowledge well. He worked alongside us so that the client really felt like a "team" was helping him, rather than two separate advisors.

Complex and disputed repayment claim (personal and business taxes): “Paul was recommended to me by my accountant to help with a fairly complex matter involving reclaim of various kinds of overpaid taxes from HMRC.  The whole thing was made very much more difficult by the different HMRC districts and bodies involved, exacerbated by internal reorganisation.  Paul’s help and leadership through this whole process has been invaluable.  I wouldn’t have received anything had it not been for his insight into the workings of HMRC, how to address them (very robustly at times) and when and how to follow up.  I recommend him unhesitatingly for anyone with anything other than a simple query of HMRC.” Paul B. Prestbury, Cheshire, 10 June 2013

Thwarted HMRC attempt to open a "closed" year using "discovery": “Paul provided a very clear assessment of the key technical issues which allowed us to be very robust in our responses to HMRC.  A great resource to be able to get a such a well-qualified second opinion” Gary Underwood, partner, Franklin Underwood accountants, Derby, 7 March 2013
