HMRC tax investigations

Technical support for HMRC investigations

We all know these are increasing, and they generate a significant amount of stress for those at the receiving end. A key factor in your relationship with HMRC is the perceived quality of your agent. This not only lowers the likelihood of an investigation but ensures that it proceeds more smoothly.

You might think that an investigation is going to be expensive in terms of our fees, but because we offer a fully inclusive fee service for compliance, we will cover all of our time costs at no extra cost unless there are circumstances involving fraud.

Sometimes HMRC tax investigations will revolve around a technical point and where we feel that the point requires specialist input we involve specialists from the independent consultancies that we have relationships with. These will vary according to the circumstances, but we would seek to obtain a cost estimate prior to proceeding.
