Abstract

Examines the House of Lords judgment in Customs and Excise Commissioners v Total Network SL on whether the claimant could maintain a damages claim under the tort of unlawful means conspiracy against a participant in a missing trader, or carousel, VAT fraud, and whether the conduct amounting to the 'unlawful means' should be distinct from, or could be the same, as that founding the tort of intentionally inflicting harm by unlawful means. Considers the applicability of the definition of 'unlawful means' provided by the Court's ruling in OBG Ltd v Allan.
