Salmond has been with Deloitte since 2002, becoming a director in the tax department in 2006. He was formerly with Garretts, the law firm associated with Andersen. Before that he spent six years in the Solicitor’s Office for HM Customs and Excise.

Salmond has acted in a large number of cases both before the UK courts and tribunals and the European Court of Justice, including appearing as an advocate before the ECJ in a complex customs valuation case relating to the EU’s international agreements on trade (GATT and WTO). He also acted for Condé Nast, the media company, in the leading VAT case on time limits which established that the introduction of the three year cap in 1997 without transitional provisions was unlawful.

He was involved in the first UK tax mediation and has since acted in a number of successful tax mediations.
