First tax chamber tribunal president appointed

The Scottish Government has announced the appointment of the inaugural Tax Chamber President of the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland. Mrs Anne Scott has accepted the appointment with effect from Monday 24th April, when the jurisdiction of devolved taxes transferred from the Tax Tribunals for Scotland to the newly-created Scottish Tribunals.

For most of her working life Mrs Scott was based in Aberdeen where, at various stages, she had been a partner in Brander & Cruickshank W.S., a tax partner in Ernst & Young, a Board Member at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and also Aberdeen Harbour Board and a Governor of the Robert Gordon University.

Mrs Scott has been a Judge in the UK First-tier Tribunal Tax Chamber since its inception and has been living and working in Edinburgh for the last five years. Mrs Scott has also been a Judge in the Social Entitlement Chamber for many years and a legal member of Mental Health Tribunal Scotland since its inception.

“I am delighted Mrs Scott has accepted this appointment, and confident that her knowledge and experience in tax law and tribunals will be greatly beneficial to the operation of the First-tier Tribunal Tax Chamber,” said Minister for Legal Affairs Annabelle Ewing. “I am also grateful to Ruthven Gemmell for his work as Temporary President of the Scottish Tax Tribunals pending the appointment of the new Tax Chamber President.”
