Tax investigations can be time consuming and stressful to deal with. When HMRC open an investigation, they will often have specific information causing them to think there may be issues with tax returns (even if the information proves to be incorrect).
Having been trained to HMRC’s highest level we know how HMRC approach investigations, the tactics they will use, and when they are acting outside their remit. By putting this knowledge to good use, we can often significantly reduce both the tax HMRC believe is payable, and the time it can take to resolve the investigation.
On taking over an investigation, we will give a realistic view on the potential timescales involved, and the cost of dealing with the matter.
