AccountingWeb have published a useful guide on what to expect in a First Tier Tax Tribunal (FTTT) based partly on members’ experiences, and partly on notes on some of the basic practicalities extracted with the permission of publisher Claritax from tax barrister Keith Gordon’s book, Tax Chamber Hearings: A User’s Guide 2013.
FTTT were set up in 2009 to replace the four separate tax tribunals (Special and General Commissioners, VAT and Duties and Section 706 Tribunals), the tax chamber deals with direct and indirect tax-related decisions made by HMRC, including:
- Income tax
- Corporation tax
- Capital gains tax (CGT)
- National insurance
- Stamp duty land tax (SDLT)
AccountingWeb's guide can be read via this link.
