Huitson, Regina (on The Application of) v Revenue and Customs: CA 25 Jul 2011

The claimant challenged the lawfulness of HMRC’s enforcement of retrospective amendments to legislation in violation of his human rights. The claimant says that, before the legislation was amended with retrospective effect, he was entitled to relief from UK income tax on income received by him from a trust in the Isle of Man. Now HMRC rely on the amendments to deny him, retrospectively, the tax relief previously available.
