Every year thousands of individuals and businesses are selected, at random, by HMRC for a tax enquiry.
This means that, even where you have complied with every letter of the law, you may find you or your business is under investigation.
HMRC also target areas where they believe tax is at risk of not being properly reported and collected.
They can use sophisticated software to cross check an individual’s bank information and tax returns, to uncover any anomalies.
HMRC investigations are time-consuming, stressful and costly. They can last for many months and in some cases over a year.
During this time, you will incur accountancy fees as well as having to deal with the inevitable disruption and uncertainty to you and your business.
The best defence for a HMRC investigation is to engage professional representation from us from the outset – and to help you deal with the costs, we offer a Tax investigation Service.
If you are selected by HMRC for investigation you can relax safe in the knowledge that there will be no additional accountancy fees to pay.
