Rob Warne

Partner, Head of VAT and Customs Duty services

I am the head of Crowe's specialist VAT and Customs Duty services group. I have extensive VAT knowledge of the Non Profit sector and my experience covers not only the obvious issues of business activities and partial exemption but crucially how VAT impacts on any transaction in relation to land and property where the VAT at stake is often considerable.

I have been with Crowe since 1988 joining directly from HMRC where I was a VAT inspector. My professional VAT qualifications include ATII and IIT and I am also a member of the VAT Practitioners Group and the Charity Tax Reform Group.

I am also responsible for coordinating Crowe's VAT training seminars, both externally as well as 'in house' and I regularly speak on the VAT charity circuit.
