Harriet Brown

Harriet Brown is a Barrister with Tax Chambers in Jersey. She is a member of the Revenue Bar Association, the Chancery Bar Association, the Law Society of Jersey and an adjunct professor at the Institute of Law, Jersey.

Harriet advises taxpayers in relation to UK tax matters. She advises on all direct tax matters for private and corporate clients as well as in the context of trusts and estates, and on indirect tax matters. In addition to advising extensively on traditional private client matters, Harriet has a particular interest in international matters such as double tax treaties, TIEAs, disclosure facilities and conflict of laws issues arising in a tax context.

Harriet also has extensive experience of resolving disputes with HMRC in both direct and indirect tax matters. Her approach is always to give detailed and practical advice from the initial enquiry through to any tribunal hearing. She offers a full service, particularly advising on the conduct and settling of tax enquiries, which often results in a favorable conclusion at an early stage. She can advise and act in all forms of alternative dispute resolution with HMRC, as well as in traditional litigation. She is committed to obtaining a quick and cost effective solution.

Harriet's Jersey practice primarily involves advising on Jersey trusts and tax in Jersey, both direct and indirect (GST). Matters typically have a UK tax element. She has particular expertise in relation to trust remedies in Jersey (including the new statutory mistake and Hastings-Bass regimes) and Jersey income tax.

She is author of The Jersey Law of Trusts (4th Edition, Key Haven Publications September 2013) and a co-author of The Interaction of EU Treaty Freedoms and the UK Tax Code (Key Haven Publications November 2011).
