 Andy Vessey ATT 500 x 400        


Andy has been deeply involved with IR35 since its inception in the year 2000 and has personally defended more than 500 IR35 cases, winning almost every single one. Most recently, he successfully represented Jensal Software Ltd at the First-Tier Tax Tribunal in their highly publicised IR35 appeal.

In 1993, Andy qualified with the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) and now has 38 years of tax experience under his belt, specialising in employment status matters. He started his tax life at the Inland Revenue (now HMRC) before going on to work for a variety of accountancy practices, and then Qdos Contractor for 17 years. He's now Head of Tax here at Larsen Howie and also runs his own practice, V-Tax Consulting.      

Andy is available for technical content, news articles and expert commentary on relevant current events. He also runs IR35 training and contractor tax issues sessions. For any of his services, see prices below or get in touch

'It's rare that you come across a business that absolutely understands what your needs are and delivers a service you would recommend to your own clients. Andy and his team delivered an exceptional annual refresher training to Conscious Benefits & Consultancy that was far better than previous suppliers have done. They are knowledgeable, well informed and extremely personable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to other businesses.' - Alison Goodwin, Director, CONSCIOUS BENEFITS LTD
