Taxing Matters: A handy guide to appeals

Published on 27 October 2020

Welcome to the eighth episode of our Taxing Matters podcast. In this series we review land-mark cases and key tax developments and discuss the commercial impact they could have on your business.

In this episode, following on from our episode on judicial reviews, we take a look at another key tool in the taxpayer's arsenal – the appeal. Costa Christofi provides practical tips on the steps involved in appealing an HMRC decision.

Costa's insights into the appeal process cover topics including:

  • What kinds of decisions are appealable;
  • Tight timeframes and what to do if you miss one;
  • Evidence that should be collected to rely on at a hearing; and
  • The impact of COVID-19 and lockdown on hearings.
