General Advisory

We can advise generally on all taxes and duties, both direct and indirect and business rates.  We can consider the tax effects of past and future transactions, and we pride ourselves on providing practical advice that is legally precise and commercially sound.

Legal advice can be given in a formal written opinion or in a settled note following a conference. Any advice given by a member of chambers on which a Lay Client and/or Professional Client wish to rely must be recorded in writing, settled or produced by the member.

In the direct tax field members of Chambers advise on the following taxes and charges: Corporation Tax, Income Tax, National Insurance Contributions, Capital Gains Tax, Inheritance Tax, Petroleum Revenue Tax and Bank Levy, amongst others.

Members advise on the following indirect taxes: VAT, Stamp Duty Land Tax, Stamp Duty, Stamp Duty Reserve Tax, Customs Duty, Excise Taxes, Aggregates Levy, Landfill Tax, Gambling Duty, Insurance Premium Tax, Climate Change Levy and Hydrocarbon Oils Duty, amongst others.

Members of Chambers also give seminars, lectures and in-house training to firms of solicitors and accountants on a range of tax-related issues.
