Daphne joined Price Bailey in February 2019 as a Partner in the Tax Team based in the City of London.

Daphne is a VAT specialist and has spent seventeen years in the Big Four accountancy firms and a spell working in industry at Barclays Bank as their in-house VAT specialist. She qualified in 1995 at PwC.

Daphne leads the team responsible for advisory services to clients requiring specialist VAT knowledge. She is regularly asked to advise in respect of property and construction matters where large value VAT issues can arise. She advises on all aspects of property transactions for small and large residential and commercial developers, property managing agents, solicitors, surveyors, architects, residential conversions and property investors. She also has significant expertise in litigation, technology, manufacturing, music, media and entertainment, financial services, charities and the not-for-profit sectors. She combines this with a wide commercial understanding having worked over the years with businesses of all sizes from individuals converting residential properties to large multi-national corporate groups.

Daphne works closely with our corporate structuring department. She advises on sale and purchase transactions, the recovery of VAT on deal costs for holding companies and other VAT saving measures. In her litigation role, she has prepared instructions to counsel on numerous matters and negotiated multi-million pound VAT assessments directly with HMRC.

Price Bailey prides itself on providing a wide range of services and solutions to its clients. Daphne provides VAT advisory support from day-to-day compliance work and devising solutions, to VAT accounting and structuring business development projects to maximise VAT efficiency.
