Resolving complex tax issues in the United Kingdom
The International Family Offices Journal

We turn next to a complicated subject by Andrew Park (London). Andrew begins with a bit of history, reminding us that the tax authority dates back to the 1660s and the fiscal demands of the Second Anglo-Dutch War on the former Inland Revenue side and much further still, into medieval history, on the former Customs side. As such, he notes the processes are highly evolved. Nonetheless, it is quite possible to reach satisfactory resolutions of the complex tax issues, if one goes about it the right way. He clearly knows his way around the system and gives clear explanations of the possible advantage of giving some voluntary compliance. The article is a valuable guide to resolving complex tax issues.
