HMRC’s appeal dismissed - Roger Skinner’s dog food for working gun dogs is VAT zero-rated.

1st June 2014

Paul Whittle is part of a team acting for Roger Skinner Limited in the claim for a VAT repayment based on whether the company’s products were standard rated or zero rated. The HMRC appealed the First Tier Tribunal (FTT) decision of April/May 2012 in favour of Roger Skinner to the Upper Tribunal (UT) and in May 2014 the taxpayer again succeeded.

Although successful, the team now has to await HMRC’s decision as to whether to appeal further.

Barristers Michael Conlon QC and Anne Redston acted as counsel, with Peter Crix of Gotelees in Ipswich, as Solicitors.
