Profile

David Barker

Description

Change is afoot, says Rawlinson & Hunter’s David Barker, as the relationship between HMRC and the accountancy profession has become ‘appreciably worse’. He attributes this, in part, to ‘aggression’ from HMRC, which has begun to target many of Barker’s nom-dom clients with onerous enquiries. Often one comes soon after another necessitating the submission of the same information. ‘I do think it’s counterproductive,’ he says.

Barker works closely with non-dom clients to help them understand and respond to approaches from the taxman – and is frequently successful. ‘We’ve had some notable wins on those domicile enquiries,’ he says.
