Tony BullockAssociate Partner, Indirect Tax at EY
Tony began his career at HMRC in the 1980’s before joining EY nearly 30 years ago. He was a general VAT advisor for a number of years before focusing on transactions for the last 20 years or so, establishing the first specialised VAT team amongst the Big 4 dedicated to transaction projects. During this time he led the EY midlands practice for a few years before returning to lead the London VAT team in Transaction Tax again in 2017. Tony often represents EY in discussions with HMRC on transaction related topics, including the issue of HMRC’s holding company guidance in 2017, and secured substantial VAT refunds across a number of cases that had been stalled within long term litigation. Tony also leads the VAT team that specialises in restructuring and turn around projects, as well as formal insolvency appointments.
