There are very formal processes to be followed once an appeal is in the Tax Tribunal system and failure to follow these can result in the case not been heard before the Tax Tribunal.
Generally the Tax Tribunal will issue directions to HRMC and to the appellant setting out the deadlines and timescale for matters to happen. Often these can be influenced by another event occurring (e.g the completion of one stage early can trigger the clock for the next stage of the process relating to the Tax Tribunal). Agreement can be reached to change the deadlines set out as part of the tax tribunal process but this must be done in advance of the deadline date and with approval of all parties.
A brief overview of the process for Paper appeals to the Tax Tribunal is as follows:
Generally the process relating to the basic appeal to the Tax Tribunal is that an informal hearing will be arranged where you, our advisor and any witnesses can present your case against the HMRC decision. HMRC will also present its case to the Tax Tribunal. All of this is done verbally, although documents may have been sent to the Tribunal before or referred to at the tax tribunal. It is normal practice that the Judgement of the Tax Tribunal is given at the end of the hearing.
An outline of the procedures for standard and complex appeals is as follows:
