Tax investigation and fee protection
Increasingly, business owners and individuals are finding themselves subject to tax enquiries and investigations by HMRC. These checks can last months, even years.
An investigation could be random, or it could be triggered by factors such as frequent errors on your tax returns or a pattern of unprofitability. HMRC can even open a tax investigation without giving you a reason. Whether you find yourself facing a ‘full’ or ‘aspect’ tax investigation, it is your responsibility to prove you are providing accurate financial information.
Our experienced tax investigation team has been helping clients in Devizes, Marlborough, Calne, Royal Wootton Bassett, Pewsey, Hungerford, and other parts of Wiltshire and Berkshire to manage their tax affairs for many years.
We recommend our tax investigation service and fee protection scheme to all our clients, as it can shield you from potentially costly fees, should you face an HMRC investigation. Our specialists have years of experience in handling tax enquiries and can manage HMRC investigations on your behalf, using their in-depth knowledge of the process to ensure any responses made to HMRC provide you with the best possible defence.
A tax enquiry could be short term, but in some cases can last for years. For a small annual fee, you can give yourself peace of mind that you are covered by our fee protection scheme, which covers any fees incurred while we are handling an HMRC investigation for you. We are here to handle everything on your behalf, reducing the stress of a tax investigation.
