Business protection service

The likelihood that your business will face a random tax enquiry has grown significantly. HMRC officers are now proactively targeting businesses, using increased powers and advanced software to search for the smallest discrepancies in businesses’ financial records.

Last year, tax enquiries and investigations brought in over £30bn for HMRC. HMRC inspectors can freely visit your business premises and review your financial records, including tax returns and PAYE information. An investigation can also cover your personal affairs.

The increased frequency and complexity of such enquiries has led to climbing professional fees, which, understandably, is a cause for concern among business owners.

Our business protection service gives you peace of mind that, if HMRC does look into your tax returns, you have expert advice and support at hand.
