Economia, the online magazine for chartered accountants, has published the following article about the actor who starred as Harry Potter’s best friend Ron Weasley, and a tax refund he is claiming. We’ve shared the article below…
Actor Rupert Grint is battling HMRC over a £1m tax refund he believes he is owed. The actor, who played Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, is fighting previous ruling, which found HMRC was right to block a tax return of £1m. In 2016, Grint tried to claim the tax back by using a change in accounting dates to avoid paying a higher tax rate on his earnings.
At the time Judge Barbara Mosadele found Grint had changed his accounting date so 20 months of income would be taxed in 2009/10, one year before the top tax rate rose from 40%to 50%. She ruled he was not entitled to the refund as he had failed to give a valid reason for such change.
He has now taken his case to the Upper Tribunal, with his barrister Patrick Sooares claiming the previous judge used the wrong legal test in the ruling. According to the Daily Mirror, HMRC is contesting the appeal, as it believes there was no error of law. When discussing money with Radio Times magazine recently, he said, “I actually don’t know how much I have. I couldn’t even really guess.”
HMRC declined to comment.

We've always got our ears to the ground when it comes to interesting, useful and topical information relating to business and accountancy.
We love making videos that break down convoluted accountancy jargon into a plain talking explanation of the important facts.
In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier, the difficult part was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
