Tax Chamber Hearings


A clear guide to the procedures involved in taking a case to the Tax Chamber at the First-tier Tribunal, written by an experienced barrister who appears frequently in the Tax Chamber and the higher Courts.

On the one hand, the book provides detailed technical analysis of the legalities underpinning the tax appeals process. On the other, it offers guidance on procedural matters and on such practical issues as dress code, the typical layout of the room and the order in which the parties speak.

"A comprehensive and practical discussion of the Tax Chamber jurisdiction, rules and procedures." TAXline

"I can only applaud the approach of this guide, of stepping through the rules, providing a clear explanation and illustrating the explanation with practical examples. The analysis is clear, concise and to the point. There is also a good deal of useful and informative practical advice, difficult if not impossible to find elsewhere ..." Judge Colin Bishopp, then President of the Tax Chamber, writing in the foreword to the first edition.
