H&L advises surgeon Richard Villar on successful appeal

04 March 2019

We are delighted to have advised leading orthopaedic surgeon Richard Villar on his recent successful appeal against HM Revenue & Customs.

Mr Villar developed an orthopaedic medical practice and subsequently sold this to a third party for £1million.

We advised Mr Villar on his appeal which was successfully upheld at a first-tier Tax Tribunal.
