As well as the disruption and cost to your personal and business life, tax enquiries or tax investigations can mean paying tens or hundreds of thousands (or millions) of pounds of additional tax and penalties. Worse still, if something goes wrong a criminal tax prosecution may be on the cards.

Approach one of our specialist tax advisers to get the best outcome possible.

Small or non-complex disputes with HMRC can sometimes be dealt with by one of our tax accountants who may also be able to help you on an ongoing basis.

However our specialist tax advisers are better placed to help resolve more complex, contentious or high value issues including those that relate to correspondence from HMRC mentioning:

  • Section 9A TMA 1970 (individuals),
  • Paragraph 24 (Corporate tax enquiries),
  • Code of Practice 8 (CoP8),
  • Code of Practice 9 (CoP9),
  • Contractual Disclosure Facility (CDF),
  • Compliance checks,
  • PAYE inspections,
  • VAT investigations
  • suspected tax fraud, or
  • proceeds of crime cases.

They can also help you to resolve tax enquiries related to tax avoidance issues such as Employee Benefit Trusts (EBTs), Film Schemes, Contractor loans and so on.

Need or want to make a voluntary disclosure? Its best to get Specialist tax advice to decide on the best route – whether to use the CDF or one of HMRC's tax disclosure schemes. These include HMRC's Let Property campaign, the Digital Disclosure Service or the Worldwide tax Disclosure Facility (WDF).
