Bill Stevenson  Last updated November 2020 - Still active and challenging HMRC

Client's Rating 5/5/5 (Cost/customer service/quality)-
Bill is simply outstanding. His greatest strength is that he understands the HMRC machinery; the nuance of reading between
the lines and the background as to how they think/approach questions. Bill is deeply passionate. Bill's approach is that if you
are in the right then there is a way to communicate with HMRC in a way that your position is understood/structured within how
HMRC thinks, rather than how an average taxpayer thinks.
Bill also goes to the heart of the matter rather quickly- focusing on the underlying key points- like a fine barrister/QC who goes
in front of a judge. To compare Bill's service to a Big 4 accounting firm would be a disservice to Bill. Bill's intimate
understanding of the HMRC machinery, is like having a Formula 1 mechanic help you solve problems with your VW. Bill is
simply in his own category when it comes to professionalism, dealing with matters in a swift manner and developing a nuanced
approach that only former HMRC senior executive can. The most outstanding tax professional I have come across.

Despite having paid up to date every penny of tax due,out of the blue early last year, we were hit with a Cop9 enquiry, for no
reason we could think of. After researching tax advice on the net I phoned Bill Stevenson of WAMSTAX mainly because, from
testimonials, I could see he had some knowledge of our industry. Within 10 months, after he had gone through our books with
a fine toothcomb and satisfied himself they were in order and that there was no case to answer, he obtained closure of the
case with no tax or penalties to pay. I would have no hesitation in recommending Bill to anyone who has a problem with HMRC
and would only add that his charges were very reasonable too.

After reading about Bills background, I was confident that I had found the right person to help us out.
I contacted him by email and to my surprise he phoned me that very same night.
He prepared us for the meetings and took the worry and stress out of the whole ordeal.
We found Bill put to shame a very large tax advice company with his vast knowledge, expertise and 100% dedication, and
managed to ascertain a result we thought not possible.
I like his straight to the point attitude and thoroughly enjoyed his company.
Don't bother looking anywhere else, Bill is your man.

Bill helped me immensely in settling a long running nightmare with the Inland Revenue following an investigation relating to
unpaid Capital Gain Tax. Bill provided me with the right advice to minimise settlement following their assessment which saved
us a considerable amount of money. This advice was invaluable and finalised the dispute"...

Client's Rating 5/5 -
“ The Revenue launched an enquiry after they were dissatisfied with my
offshore disclosure. I knew there were problems
and particularly as a professional man I was terrified. Having floundered around for a week or two looking at the different
websites, that offered expertise for those in my predicament, I took the plunge and phoned Bill. His number was top of the list I
had made and I'm glad it was. After an initial discussion on the phone, Bill agreed to meet me. He was totally non-judgemental,
he made the ground rules clear - absolute honesty with him or he would walk away - and it was clear that he had an
encyclopaedic knowledge of tax and of how the HMRC system worked.
It seems to me the Revenue recognise his qualities and all the patient, laborious work he did on my rather messy affairs paid
off with acceptance of his workings and a penalty that was very much at the bottom end of expectations. If you are looking for a
highly effective tax professional, whom you can confidently work with towards an optimal solution look no further than Bill
Stevenson.”  …

Bill recently handled a tax investigation which spanned the period pre 2000 to 2009. The whole business had become
extremely stressful with demands for information which we did not have. All the difficulty was removed by having Bill on the
case. He tracked down missing records where available and dealt directly with HMRC keeping us informed along the way.
Whilst the outcome was not without some pain I am convinced that we would not have reached closure or achieved settlement
in such an advantageous manner without his services. If I ever have a serious tax issue again Bill will be my first call...

IR35 case -
I am a qualified Accountant with a small but growing practice. I had an investigation (IR35) into one of my clients which had
been ongoing for some 18 months. Bill was recommended by a colleague and I engaged him as an external tax consultant. He
was very knowledgeable and effective. His revenue background meant he knew the best approach to take.
Suffice to say, under Bill's supervision, we presented our case in a more targeted manner. The result was that the investigating
officer threw in the towel and my client paid no additional tax or penalties. I wouldn't hesitate to use Bill Again

After quite a few sleepless nights contemplating my plan of action and how to get out of the mess I had landed myself. I had a
chat with Bill and he laid down the options and possible outcomes.
To cut a long story short... At the end of the day I was astonished with the 'nil' result that he achieved.
Many thanks Bill, appreciated.

I can’t recommend Bill Stevenson’s services more highly. Having spent over 9 months trying to deal with an HMRC offshore
disclosure enquiry on my own, going nowhere and getting more intrusive – Bill sorted it out in 3 months.
Not only dealing with what looked like a potentially
large CGT, but also turning this into a Tax Repayment!.
The whole episode was really a reflection on the time wasting methods of HMRC, and the efficiency of Bill in dealing with them.

I would not hesitate to recommend Bill Stevenson to you.  Bill is easy to get along with, he keeps everything at an easy-to-
understand level, and as a result of his previous experience is second to none when it comes to interacting with HMRC.
.... Don’t even consider going into a Tax Enquiry without first running everything past Bill Stevenson!

Bill Stevenson of WAMS Tax Ltd provided me with advice relating to HMRC enquiries into two Ltd companies and also an
HMRC enquiry into my own personal tax return.
Advice on one single technical issue which the Inspector was trying to raise an assessment on helped result in the Inspector
backing down and saving approximately £30,000 in tax.
Throughout the enquiries Bill was pointing out mistakes made by the Inspector and raising arguments against the Inspectors
assertions. The end result was a very low settlement achieved over a very reasonable time period.
I would happily recommend Bills services.

This is a small company with big company knowlege that is second to none. I first found WAMS Tax on the internet. After
contacting Bill Stevenson we had a meeting and I decided this was the man that could help with my tax problem. Bill took
control of my problem from day one; he kept me informed of progress all the time and he was always reachable seven days at
any time. I found the service excellent and he was a very nice honest guy to work with.

WAMS Tax very efficiently dealt with a Tax Investigation during which I could see WAMS had a high level of expertise and vast
experience. I was kept informed all the way through the process without having to worry about HMRC. The outcome and
savings I made put WAMS fee as negligible. No hesitation in recommending WAMS excellent services

WAMS Tax (Bill Stevenson) did really save me a lot of time and energy. Bill dealt with all enquires from the word go and re-
calculated all my letting income for myself and my other half. I am really grateful for his efforts.

I contacted WAMS Tax Ltd early in 2007 with respect to serious concerns I had, regarding my tax position on offshore savings,
subsequent to HMRC's announcement of an offshore disclosure/amnesty.
A personal meeting was arranged and held with Mr. Bill Stevenson.
Mr. Stevenson from the outset was professional in a relaxed way and, after laying down the ground rules to protect both his
and my integrity, he quickly put me at my ease and I found it very easy to explain my concerns.
After the facts were put before him he advised me efficiently and in detail on how to proceed and to gather the full data
required to make a professional judgement of my position.
On review of this data he was able to quickly allay my concerns and as eventually proved to be the case they were unfounded
after he advised me on making a disclosure to HMRC.

Without the professional advice and guidance offered by WAMS Tax Ltd. I fear I would have been floundering on this issue.
Overall I found Mr. Stevenson to be efficient and friendly and it was a pleasure to deal with him.

Wams Tax were exceptional from start to finish.
I would highly recommend Wams Tax Limited to anyone requiring their services for either themselves or their business.
My special thanks to Bill, who understood our concerns and acted fantastically.
What more can I say...Exceptional Company.
Louise - Director - South England

Really great communication and comprehensive assesment of my tax situation. Prepared really well so that when reports
submitted to HMRC no nasty surprises and outcome was very positive in reducing penalties to the minimum.
I would highly recommend for anyone with a sizeable tax investigation or enquiry to manage,
