Churchill Tax Advisers have recently assisted our client in defending himself against the Insolvency Service who were seeking his disqualification as a director. Working with the client we were able to demonstrate that his behaviour, which had been considered detrimental to the public good by the Insolvency Service, was actually that of a businessman seeking to save his company as the retail market he operated in changed due to Brexit and the tough economic conditions that many areas have experienced. We were able to show that his own losses from the winding up of his business were as great as those of others. The Insolvency Service when presented with all the circumstances took the decision to take no further action.
Churchill Tax Advisers have successfully assisted a medical clinic that had been under investigation regarding the exemption of its supplies. HMRC believed that the supplies being made were taxable at the STANDARD RATE. Working with our client we were able to demonstrate that the client’s work fell completely within the medical exemption as set out in the VAT legislation. We were also able to bring to HMRC’s attention, changes in case law which also favourably demonstrated our client’s position. The outcome was that our client maintained its system of charging and did not become twenty per cent more expensive in delivering its services.
