In 2009 Alastair joined Mazars with joint responsibility for the employer compliance team.

He is considered a leading expert on all aspects of employment tax and is also heavily involved on company car taxation. Alastair advises employers on a wide range of issues from dealing with an employer compliance reviews to helping to introduce flexible benefit/salary sacrifice arrangements. He helps employers consider their company car policy and the level of any cash alternative on a uk and pan European basis.

He was part of the working party on the CIS (Construction Industry Scheme) and was recently involved in representing a number of clients on appeals over the loss of their gross status and for claims against contractors for tax when incorrectly applying for CIS. These appeals have been heard at the first tier tax tribunal.

He is the author of the chapter on Employment Income in the latest edition of the HMRC Investigations Handbook 2014/15 published by Bloomsbury Professional.  He has also written the chapter on company car taxation in the book 'Managing Your Company Car'.
