  • Rainer Hughes achieves landmark judgment

    Over the last 30 years Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs have on a daily basis detained goods where they believed or suspected that they may be liable to forfeiture because of the non payment of VAT or excise duty, purportedly under s. 139(1) of the Customs and Excise Management Act 1979. In the recent case of Eastenders v HMRC [2012] EWCA Civ 15 the Court of Appeal have declared that practice to be unlawful.
