VAT Upper-Tier Tax Tribunal update

Tower Resources plc (TRP.L, TRP LN), the AIM listed oil and gas company with its focus on Africa ("Tower" or the "Company") , is pleased to announce that it has received a favourable ruling from the Upper-Tier Tax Tribunal ("UTTC") upholding the First-Tier Tax Tribunal's decision in the Company's favour on 8(th) July 2019 (the "FTT Decision") and dismissing HMRC's appeal against the FTT Decision.

The FTT Decision, which was announced by the Company on 9(th) July 2019, allowed the Company's appeal against HMRC's 2016 decisions to deny it credit for input VAT. The UTTC's decision dated 20(th) May 2021 affirms the FTT Decision, but remains subject to further appeal by HMRC to the Court of Appeal. Any such appeal application should be made within one month.

The Company has fully provided for assessments previously issued by HMRC in the Company's accounts up to and including its most recent Interim Accounts for the period ended 30(th) June 2020, and will continue to do so until final resolution of the matter.
