BPP Holdings v Revenue and Customs: CA 1 Mar 2016

HMRC had been debarred from further participation in the proceedings. BPP provided training courses, and the issue was as to the chargeability to VAT of books supplied between companies in the group. In the proceedings, HMRC repeatedly failed to meet deadlines and an order was made debarring them unless they complied. They did not. They then challenged their exclusion.
