Peter has significant experience in advising local authorities on VAT issues. He spent the last three of his nine years with Customs and Excise as policy adviser to Customs’ local authority VAT teams. Peter subsequently joined Ernst & Young’s public sector VAT team in 1997.
In June 2003, recognising the demand for sensibly priced quality VAT advice within the local authority sector, Peter left Ernst & Young and started PSTAX. As a long-standing member of the CIPFA VAT Committee, Peter is regularly involved in providing input on policy matters and negotiating with Customs at HQ level.
