This enables him to draw on a deep level of practical experience and to use that pro-actively in bringing to you relevant issues that he has previously encountered with other similar organisations. He was previously an indirect taxes partner at Deloitte for 13 years and during this time he developed a particular interest in the cultural sector, which led to his involvement in several leading cases which influenced the treatment of VAT on cultural services in the UK. He is also a regular speaker on VAT issues affecting the sector. This all helps him to maintain a strong insight from which to optimise your VAT position.
