Find out the inside track on HMRC's current thinking as the UK's biggest Tax Investigations conference returns in 2020. This unique all day event is a must for any general tax practitioner to get the latest insight in the field of tax investigations straight from the leading industry professionals. To help us celebrate 10 years of the UK Tax Investigations Conference, we’re inviting some of our crowd favourites back to present again this year! As it stands, our first confirmed speakers for 2020 are:

Mark brings a unique understanding of HMRC to the advantage of Buzzacott’s clients, resulting in more efficient handling of HMRC enquiries and, for those who have any irregularities, minimising unnecessary tax, interest and penalties and, in the most serious cases, avoiding criminal investigation and the confiscation of assets. He consults and communicates directly with HMRC Policy on its current and future enforcement and compliance work, thus shaping HMRC’s approach to tackling tax avoidance and evasion.
