Sharon Gillies

Position: Partner: VAT



“Things are often not quite as they appear in the Wonderful World of VAT! I enjoy deciphering complex and sometimes seemingly odd VAT legislation and case law, translating it according to the needs of my clients”

Sharon has a wealth of experience across all areas of VAT gained over a 25 year period. Sharon started her VAT career in what was then HM Customs & Excise, where she spent 12 years covering a range of duties including VAT assurance and dealing with complex business enquiries. Prior to joining Greenback Alan LLP in 2010, Sharon spent several years in a top 10 accountancy firm advising multinational corporates and providing general VAT advice to clients in a wide variety of industries.

Sharon currently advises on all aspects of VAT across the international client base of the firm, ranging from compliance requirements to identifying planning structures and opportunities to mitigate clients’ VAT liabilities.

Sharon is a member of the VAT Practitioners Group and of the Chartered Management Institute.
