Qubic expands senior team with appointment of Tax Investigations Director
Accountancy and tax firm Qubic Tax has recruited a leading tax specialist in a new role as Tax Investigations and Employment Tax Director to assist its growing portfolio of advisers and clients with tax investigation dispute resolution and employment tax services.
Qubic, a national firm of tax specialists with offices in London and Newcastle, specialises in providing tax advice to SME’s, high net worth clients and business owners throughout the UK.
Now in its tenth year of business, with over 40 staff, Qubic is pleased to welcome Dave Jennings to oversee its tax disputes and employment tax services and further strengthen its senior technical tax team.

Mr Jennings commented:
“I’m delighted to be starting a new role at Qubic. My role will be primarily helping clients and their professional advisers on various HMRC tax enquiries and disputes, including employment tax issues and COP8/COP9 enquiries.
I’ve also helped hundreds of clients with onshore/offshore voluntary tax disclosures, and I have experience at the First and Upper Tier Tax Tribunals, the Court of Appeal, and as an expert witness in civil disputes and criminal prosecutions. I’m looking forward to bringing my experience to Qubic and speaking with firms I know will greatly benefit from assistance in negotiating the best settlement or solution for them“.
Mr Jennings’ work will also focus on assisting taxpayers and firms with issues related to historical tax schemes and EBTs, including Accelerated Payment Notices (APNs), Follower Notices and the 2019 loan charge.
