A NEW TITLE FROM TOLLEYS:
Re: APPEALS FOLLOWING CHANGES TO THE TAX TRIBUNAL SYSTEM POST 2009
An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
One of the latest publications from Tolley LexisNexis, this ground breaking new title tackles tax appeals in the light of the changes that have occurred following the new tax tribunal system which came into effect from 1<sup>st</sup> April 2009.
The result, based on the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 (TCEA 2007) is a unified two-tier system consisting of a First Tier Tribunal (FTT) and the Upper Tier Tribunal (UT).
We would point out that this is the first edition of this particular work on tax appeals in the UK, and the authors state that their aim in writing it is to provide the busy practitioner with a practical straightforward guide to the new tax tribunal system.
And practical it is, too. In over 28 chapters, the new tribunal system is explained and elaborated upon, focusing initially on how appeals begin for both direct and indirect taxes.
The appeal process is then logically explained from the beginning all the way to the Supreme Court. There are chapters, too, dealing with specific issues such as costs, alternative dispute resolution, judicial review, European law and the impact of human rights, as each of these areas pertains to tax appeals. Also there is useful coverage of HMRC’s internal review process.
Written by two acknowledged experts in this field, the book is a treasure trove of specific and logically organised information and research tools, with extensive tables of cases, legislation and statutory instruments, not to mention a handy list of abbreviations and an index at the back. There are seven appendices, including three on Tribunal procedure and rules, plus practice directions and practice statements.
Accessible, easily navigable and logically structured, this is a great guidebook for the practitioner under pressure. This edition reflects the law as at 20 December 2012.
