An Experienced former Tax Inspector

Prior to joining PwC, Ronnie spent several years as a tax inspector. He was seconded back to HMRC in 2011 where he worked with a team of senior HMRC policy officials (working to the Permanent Secretary for Tax at HMRC) on the Review of Tax Disputes. The outcome of this review led to, amongst other developments, the publication of updated guidance on HMRCs Litigation and Settlement Strategy and the commencement of HMRC pilots on the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods to resolve outstanding tax disputes.

Industry Lecturer

Ronnie is a regular lecturer at national and international tax investigations conferences. He has authored a number of articles on tax dispute and investigation subjects for leading professional publications and was a consultant editor to Lexis Nexis on their tax investigations advice material for accountants and tax advisors.

Accredited Mediator

Ronnie is one of only a handful of Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) accredited mediators operating in the UK tax market. He has practical experience of using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) techniques and in leading formal mediations to resolve long standing tax disputes.

Extensive Sports Industry Experience

Ronnie has worked extensively in the sports industry where he has represented a number of leading sports clubs and professionals to resolve their outstanding issues with HMRC. He is regarded as a specialist in the area of the taxation of image rights and has authored a chapter on this subject for the latest edition of Sport: Law and Practice (Lewis & Taylor).

At Pannu Tax we will:

  • Work quickly and cost effectively to ensure that early progress is made
  • Keep you fully informed of progress through regular updates; we understand the stress and uncertainty which can come from unresolved tax investigations
  • Be available to discuss matters when you need us to
  • Deliver on time and within any pre-agreed budget.

You will have access to leading specialist knowledge and experience usually only found in the large accountancy firms but at a fraction of the cost.

Much of our work comes from other advisors. We are always happy to work with and support them or take their client’s issues forward to a conclusion.
