Tax Investigation Service

If you are concerned about the possibility of an HMRC tax investigation or have been notified that you or your business are being investigated by HMRC, we can help.

An investigation might relate to irregularity picked up or suspected by HMRC through to suspected fraud. Any investigation of course needs to be taken very seriously and good advice, accounting and possible legal, is strongly recommended.

Small businesses also often confuse investigation with inspection. Most small business, at some point, will get a routine tax inspection, especially businesses registered for VAT. An inspection also needs to be prepared for but does not denote any pre-existing suspicion on the part of HMRC of tax avoidance or irregularity, so it’s important not to get defensive.

With HMRC becoming increasingly aggressive in their approach to raising tax, many clients like the peace of mind that, should they receive notification that their affairs are to be investigated, any time we spend on supporting the investigation, is paid for.

Our Tax Investigations Package is designed to reimburse the costs of your defence in the event that you are selected for enquiry. Our service also covers the costs of our time attending any routine VAT or PAYE compliance visit undertaken by HMRC together with any ‘aspect’ enquiries into your accounts.
