Richard Jeens is the contributing editor of the 9th edition of this publication which summarises the framework for tax disputes in a number of jurisdictions. Richard Jeens, Dominic Robertson and Charles Osborne are authors of the UK chapter.
Surveying the general tax landscape this year, it is clear that, alongside the very significant economic and health impact of the covid-19 pandemic, the pandemic continues to impose significant burdens on taxpayers, tax authorities and tax professionals alike. While many organisations and tax professionals have focused on the immediate response to the pandemic and how best to support impacted businesses, our experience and the contributions in the chapters that follow suggest there is far greater scope for tax-related controversy going forward as tax authorities look for means of restoring public finances, both through an increased ‘tax take’ and more robust collection measures.
