CIoT PRESIDENT Stephen Coleclough has joined dispute resolution firm Expert Evidence as it expands its tax practice.

Coleclough joins the seven-strong team of experts, who provide dispute consultancy, mediation, arbitration and adjudication services.

Coleclough is qualified as a solicitor and spent 16 years with PwC, culminating in a role as global head of indirect taxes. Prior to that, he was head of corporate and indirect taxes at Simmons & Simmons. He was chairman of the CIoT’s Technical Committee from May 2005 to May 2008.

Between 2008 and 2012 he was president of the Confédération Fiscale Européenne, the body of European tax advisers, which embraces 33 national organisations from 24 European States, representing more than 180,000 tax advisers.

He has advised on various tax disputes in the courts, including Investment Trust Companies v HMRC this year and assisted the upper-tier tribunal as an expert in helping them overturn previous authority.

Coleclough has also served as a judge in this year’s British Accountancy Awards.

As CIoT president, Coleclough has been critical of Britain’s “slapdash” approach to Europe, noting in his inaugural speech that a “more serious, grown-up approach from government to complying with EU tax law” is required.
