Ball UK Holdings: approaching accounting disputes


14 July 2017

​We have seen many more disputes involving accounting evidence over the past few years than ever before.

The tribunal is far more interested in a clear and logical analysis of the standards themselves, and the quality of the analysis presented by your expert will be crucial.

Charles Yorke (Allen & Overy) examines a recent decision which debunks a number of assumptions about the approach of both HMRC and tribunals towards accounting evidence.
