Tax investigations are time consuming, disruptive and can cause a great deal of worry. Under pressure to increase its tax take, HMRC has intensified the focus on business owners.

If HMRC notifies you about a tax enquiry or investigation, it is essential that you know your rights.

Our experts, several of whom have previously worked for HMRC, combine their knowledge of processes and procedures, tax legislation and your situation to protect your interests. Most of our clients have no experience of tax enquiries, so our priority is to give you practical advice that helps you deal successfully with any eventuality. 

Our experience encompasses investigations raised by specialist units of HMRC including the Fraud Investigation Service, dedicated industry teams and offshore avoidance groups.

We aim to help you deal with investigations as quickly and effectively as possible, negotiating the best possible outcome should a dispute arise. We also advise clients wishing to review their affairs proactively and better manage their tax risk before a problem occurs.

We can help with all types of tax enquiries, including the following.

  • PAYE and VAT reviews

  • Tax investigations

  • Appeals, tribunals and litigation support

  • Voluntary disclosures
