Midlands law firm expands tax team


"Im thrilled to be joining a growing and progressive firm such as Wright Hassall where I can use all my expertise and experience to make a difference to thousands of their clients and contacts "

A leading Midlands law firm is expanding its specialist tax team with a major appointment.

Kevin Hall – who has more than 22 years of VAT experience and is a published author – has joined Leamington-based Wright Hassall as a Partner from a national independent tax consultancy firm.

Alongside helping businesses to navigate Brexit-related VAT changes, Kevin will also be providing VAT advice to businesses and their advisers across all areas, including property, cross-border transactions, financial services, mixed supplies, aircraft/yachts and margin schemes. 

Kevin said: “A great deal of SMEs – including many of Wright Hassall’s clients and intermediary contacts – are seeking guidance on how they can navigate the regulatory obstacles posed by Brexit when the transition period ends on 31 December 2020, and this will be an immediate focus of mine.

“There are going to be VAT changes for businesses that are buying and selling goods internationally, as well as those who are buying and selling services with the EU27, so it’s important that they are seeking advice to ensure they aren’t penalised. 

“Another key project I’ll be working on next year will be helping construction businesses to be prepared for the Domestic Reverse Charge, which is changing the way that VAT is handled in that sector.

“This reverse charge means that construction sub-contractors will no longer charge contractors for VAT in many circumstances. This is likely to significantly impact sub-contractors’ cashflow and contractors’ terms of business, while complicating both of their invoicing systems, which is why it’s important they are up to date with this measure.

“With all this in mind, I’m thrilled to be joining a growing and progressive firm such as Wright Hassall where I can use all my expertise and experience to make a difference to thousands of their clients and contacts across the country.”

Kevin’s arrival at Wright Hassall now takes the firm’s specialist tax team to eight staff, and includes other services such as SDLT and VAT on property transactions, employee incentives, and tax litigation and disputes.

John Dormer, Head of Employee Incentives & Tax at Wright Hassall, added: “Kevin has unrivalled VAT knowledge and a loyal client base. His appointment is a real coup for us and will enable us to expand our expertise and client reach even further and to work with a greater number of intermediaries on specialist areas of tax.”
