The Supreme Court, in two sets of proceedings concerning the repayment of VAT by the appellant Revenue and Customs Commissioners on management services provided to the respondent by closed-end investment trusts companies to its managers, held that the respondents did not have a common law claim of unjust enrichment against the Revenue and that position was in accord with European Union law.
