Let's talk VAT security notices with Joshua Carey

Published on 22 August 2023

One of the things that becomes clear over the course of one's career is that enforcement trends are important for businesses to be aware of. It is important to notice, not just the macro trends like sanctions compliance and fraud enforcement, but also smaller trends; campaigns against particular tax risks and the relegation of certain information gathering powers to relative obscurity.

In this episode of Taxing Matters, we discuss the rise in one of the smaller trends, the resurgence of the use of the VAT security provisions. These provisions aren't new, but they are experiencing an upswing and can have far reaching consequences for businesses, and a number of traps for the unwary. 

Joining us is Joshua Carey, an expert tax barrister at recognised repository of tax excellence, Devereux Chambers. Josh, who was recently named a Rising Star by legal directory, the Legal 500, specialises in tax, public and judicial review, commercial litigation, civil and criminal fraud, and business crime - and did we mention tax? 

Josh gives us his top tips for making sure you know what to do – and not do – if you're faced with a VAT security notice.
