Tax inspections

HMRC have stepped up their efforts to obtain tax over recent years, and many of our clients have described their activities as more aggressive than ever before. However, help is at hand if you are concerned that you will become the subject of a tax inspection or investigation. We give you the opportunity to ensure that costs related to supporting any investigation are already paid for, so you can achieve at least some peace of mind should you be targeted for a random investigation.

Covering the Costs of Defence

We offer a valuable Tax Investigations Package which will reimburse you for costs related to your defence if an enquiry is made. Clients from a variety of industries have already benefitted from this service, and you can contact us at any point if you feel it could help you. HMRC now have increase powers to inspect financial records, and the number of investigations being carried out has risen to a new high. Advancements in technology have also helped HMRC optimise their efforts to identify fraud and evasion, and the fact that billions of pounds in extra tax revenue has been generated via recent inspections means that there’s little sign of their investigations drive slowing down any time soon. Another reason for HMRC enhancing their tax inspection efforts is that the Government is attempting to raise an additional £7 billion per year in revenue. This has led to them conducting several random investigations.
