Rob heads up the VAT practice within the firm and is responsible for providing high quality advice to large corporate groups and other businesses within the private sector.
Furthermore, Rob is a leading provider of VAT solutions to housing associations, charities and other not-for-profit organisations.
Although Rob advises on all areas of VAT legislation, particular specialisms include partial exemption, land and property, international trade and issues affecting the charity/not-for-profit sectors.
Rob has managed several large-scale projects that have led to multi-million pound VAT reclaims for the motor and gaming industries. Other recent successes include the negotiation of ‘special’ VAT recovery methods for several not-for profit organisations, leading to significant refunds of additional VAT, the restructuring of a property deal to remove a potential liability of more than £1 million and negotiation with HMRC to remove a VAT assessment issued to a corporate body of more than £1.5 million.
The Nitty Gritty...
Outside of the office Rob enjoys watching and playing several sports, is a long suffering Stockport County fan, likes travelling, and relaxing with his young family.
