Hillier Hopkins tax principal appointed to HMRC group

The group will address ‘issues facing the property and construction industries’, with Ruth Corkin being one of two representatives from the ICAEW sitting on the group

Ruth Corkin, VAT and indirect tax principal at Hillier Hopkins has been appointed to HMRC’s land and property liaison group as “one of two representatives of the ICAEW”.

The land and property liaison group is a sub-group of the joint VAT consultative committee, where Corkin sits as a representative of the VAT practitioners group.

The joint VAT Consultative Committee is an HMRC-sponsored forum “allowing the exchange of views between HMRC and industry relating to the procedures and operations of VAT”. 

It allows industry and HMRC to discuss VAT issues arising with the aim of strengthening HMRC’s understanding of the needs of the business customer/taxpayer.

The group will address “issues facing the property and construction industries”, with Corkin being one of two representatives from the ICAEW sitting on the group.

She said: “Hillier Hopkins has a large client base of property developers, investors, professional landlords, and construction companies and understands the issues and challenges they face. 

“By joining this panel, we can make sure their voice is heard at the highest levels and we can share with our clients’ insights from HMRC.”
