Disputes with HMRC can often reach an impasse in which it seems that litigation is the only path to reach resolution.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a valuable tool to resolve long-running disputes via mediation whilst minimising clients’ exposure to additional professional fees and uncertainty associated with litigating at the First-Tier Tribunal.

This webinar will be useful for all tax professionals and will give an in-depth look at the ADR process, the types of disputes appropriate for mediation, and provide tips to ensure that settlement offers made within the mediation process have the best chances of being accepted.

  • Gain insights into the role of the mediator and the organisation of the mediation session
  • Refresher on HMRC's litigation and settlement strategy
  • Practical tips for building strong without prejudice offers to support commercially
