Victor Dauppe has one simple purpose: to help people structure their affairs. ‘Simple’ being the optimal word: he believes that structuring has shifted over the years, from being an exercise in craftiness to leaning on a mantra of ‘straightforward, but effective’.
‘It’s all about openness, because it’s just so painful to get involved in Revenue enquiries. You’re better off trying to do it right in the first place,’ he says. He believes we are in a transitional period, and in a tax landscape where ‘the biggest worry that [I] can see is the idea that you’re going to have to explain everything’ to a ‘belligerent’ HMRC. Given that, he welcomes the ‘move to openness’.
