The government and HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) are becoming increasingly aggressive on non-compliance on tax matters. The government recently announced it would be investing substantially over the coming years into tackling tax avoidance and evasion.
Sometimes, in order to establish that you or your business is free from wrongdoings, the HMRC may carry out intensive investigations, which can be stressful and intrusive.
We have a wealth of experience in dealing with HMRC investigations, whether they are enquiries into an individual’s tax return under the self assessment regime, corporation tax returns, more detailed enquiries into VAT matters or employer-related investigations into PAYE and P11d compliance.
If you are about to be the subject of an investigation, we can provide expert help and support. We will liaise with HMRC on your behalf and seek to bring investigations to a satisfactory conclusion as quickly as possible.
The increasing risk of HMRC investigations means that it may be worth considering investing in an annual insurance policy, that we can provide, to protect you and your business from the professional fees involved in such an enquiry, which could be substantial.
