Services - Tax Investigations
Our philosophy of developing client relationships based on trust and mutual respect will always provide the reassurance that someone is really on your side.
Our tax experts fully understand the complexities of the tax system and know what the investigators are looking for - they should... most of them have worked for HMRC. They also understand the stress and disruption a tax investigation can cause and work to make the process as straightforward as possible. Keeping our clients up to date on progress - advising clients at all times of both theirs and HMRC’s position during the investigation.
We support our clients at HMRC meetings either alongside the client or representing them on their behalf, drafting responses to HMRC and advising on the level of tax and penalties that may be charged.
At all times the best interests of the client are put first in deciding how an investigation should be dealt with. We cover investigations from a relatively simple Tax Return or PAYE Compliance check by a local tax office, up to a full Code of Practice 9 disclosure report required by a HMRC Fraud office where more serious tax irregularities have been suggested.
Our areas of specialism cover all areas of taxation and our experts are also experienced in dealing with PAYE enquiries, employment status disputes, IR35 enquiries, revocation of gross payment status for CIS, offshore disclosures, serious tax fraud enquiries, VAT Investigations and the preparation of submissions to appeals tribunals.
Through our close links with Taxwise Services Ltd we are also able to offer fee protection insurance at a competitive rate to cover our clients against the costs of defending a HMRC Investigation. Please contact us for more details on this.
