Jones Day London advises charity in relation to VAT dispute with HMRC

Client(s) Sutton Counselling Limited

Jones Day acted for Sutton Counselling in successfully challenging Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs' ("HMRC") decision that VAT should be paid on amounts received by the charity for providing counselling services to Sutton residents on the basis that these were taxable supplies. HMRC had also suggested that the three trustees of the charity were personally liable for these substantial amounts.
