The Supreme Court is due to hear HMRC's appeal against the Court of Appeal's judgment in favour of Littlewoods Ltd on 3-6 July 2017.

The Littlewoods case relates to a dispute with HMRC over the issue of whether compound, rather than simple, interest should have been received on overpayments of VAT. Littlewoods was successful before the High Court and Court of Appeal. HMRC have now appealed to the Supreme Court.

A large number of other taxpayers have similar compound interest claims and the outcome of those claims is likely to be dependent on the outcome of the Littlewoods case.

If readers are interested in watching the proceedings live there is an online livestream available via the Supreme Court's website.
