Paul Chappell

Head of Legislation and Compliance

View LinkedIn Profile

Paul has worked with Dataplan since 2016 as part of our commitment to being at the forefront of payroll legislation and compliance.

We tempted Paul over from the ‘dark side’ where he was a Tax Inspector for HMRC and managed a team of 12 PAYE investigators. After all who better to understand the demands of HMRC than an ex Tax Inspector? Since leaving HMRC, he has successfully represented clients when HMRC undertake PAYE and tax investigations.

Paul’s role now consists of providing a high level of technical expertise and advice to clients and also our own employees. His mission is to ensure that all our clients are fully compliant with all PAYE obligations and he provides a consultancy service to clients including a full review of their systems to ensure compliance with HMRC requirements.

Paul is not what you would expect an ex-tax inspector to be and loves meeting clients, firmly believing that a face-to-face meeting achieves so much more than a telephone call or email can.
