Tenon fights Revenue over costs in Agassi case

The Court of Appeal ruling in favour of Agassi, which could cost the Revenue as much as £500m if other stars use the case law, was originally referred to Way through Bar Direct.

Bar Direct is a new scheme where accountants and other professionals are licensed to brief counsel directly without the need for a solicitor.

The Revenue refused to pay costs to Tenon on the premise that it was not a firm of solicitors, which experts say completely undermines the whole point of the new system.
