An individual or business can be randomly selected for a tax investigation or enquiry by HMRC. If you are unfortunate enough to be selected it can be very stressful and time consuming.
HMRC enquiries are better targeted and are being undertaken with an unprecedented level of detail and persistence. In 2018/19, the total tax revenue increased by £22bn to £627.9bn with compliance activity yielding £34.1bn – a 12.5% increase in additional tax on 2017/18.
We would normally deal with HMRC directly allowing you to focus on running your business.
We will look to achieve the earliest possible closure of the enquiry and to eliminate or reduce any tax penalty to a minimum.
We believe that the number of investigations in coming years is likely to increase as the Government seek to increase tax revenues in order to repay the huge borrowings caused by the economic damage from COVID-19.
Any business that made a significant claim under the Job Retention Scheme is likely to have their return more closely reviewed.
