After 10 years working for HMRC Ian “crossed the floor” to private practice. He has worked for firms ranging from the “big four” to a VAT only consultancy. Throughout his career in VAT Ian has focused on how VAT impacts the property sector, and VAT recovery for businesses, charities and non-government public bodies. He also deals with HMRC regarding claims and assisting clients with VAT visits. In addition, he oversees the compliance side of the business which submits VAT returns for over 100 clients. Ian’s mantra is that “the only daft question in VAT is the one you didn’t ask”. He constantly looks to minimise client’s risks and maximising opportunities.
