Stan's professional bio / interests
Author of published books on tax. Qualified as both a chartered accountant (FCA) and a chartered tax adviser (CTA Fellow).
I’d like help with…
Writing a book on "The History of Tax Evasion" (especially VAT Carousel Fraud (also known as Missing Trader Intra-Community Fraud)). So, am interested to hear (on a non-names-basis) from any persons with "war stories" to tell about (1) attempted tax evasion by either clients or others, and (2) other types of fraud. War stories also help my fiction writing. Such persons include forensic accountants, tax advisers and former officers at HMRC (previously the Inland Revenue and HM Customs and Excise).
An interesting, or unusual fact(s) about me…
I have beaten Henman, no not at cards. It was playing singles on court. Am now reduced to playing walking football and non-competitive tennis .
A career highlight
Breaking the record for the attendance at a CCH Seminar. My talk was on the introduction of "Self-Assessment" of income tax.
