International law firm Eversheds has announced that Martin Scammell is joining its tax team in London as the new head of indirect tax services. Martin is one of the UK’s most highly-regarded experts on property VAT and on tax planning in the higher education sector, having spent the past twenty years with Ernst & Young (E&Y) – the past ten as a partner.

Martin joins Eversheds’ team of 30 UK tax experts, including three existing VAT specialists. His focus will be on his specialist area of property VAT, in both the private and public (including education) sectors. He will be working with head of tax Tom Daltry and real estate tax partner Sue Taylor from the firm’s City office.

In addition to his client work at E&Y, Martin has frequently influenced the development of VAT policy and legislation through his membership of the British Property Federation VAT committee and HM Revenue and Customs’ VAT land and property liaison group.

Tom Daltry comments: “I am delighted that Martin is joining us; this reflects the success we have been enjoying in developing our tax practice. Martin is one of the UK’s leading authorities on property VAT and I know that a wide range of Eversheds clients will be keen to take advantage of his specialist experience.”

Martin Scammell adds: “Eversheds is an acknowledged leader in higher education and real estate, so my move here is a perfect fit. I’m really looking forward to working with the tax team and helping clients to manage their VAT planning.”
