We provide both contentious and advisory VAT advice. We act on a broad range of cases including appeals before the Appeal Commissioners, judicial review applications to the High Court, appeals to the Supreme Court and cases before the European courts.
 
Contentious matters range from the establishment of the VAT treatment for invoice discounting and factoring in Ireland, the application of VAT to various property structures, the Customs Duty classification of internet security devices and the defending of claims for Customs Duty on withdrawal of GSP preference.
