We are delighted to have been awarded Best Tax Investigations Team and Best Tax Team in a National Firm at the Taxation Awards 2015.
We provide expert advice and guidance throughout the tax investigations, enquiries and disclosures process.
Whether you are facing a routine tax enquiry from HMRC, considering voluntary disclosure through one of their current facilities or if you are confronted with an in-depth investigation with potentially damaging financial consequences, we have the experience to determine the right course of actions for you. We will take the time to acquire intimate knowledge of your situation. To this, we will apply our technical knowledge of the relevant tax legislation, our up-to-date understanding of the current evolving tax landscape and our many years’ experience dealing with HMRC, in order to offer you bespoke and targeted advice tailored to your specific needs.
We are also at the forefront of the current challenge against the issue of Accelerated Payment Notices (APNs) and the legality of the relevant legislation. Therefore, if you have received an APN, we can advise and guide you appropriately.
Dealing with a tax enquiry
Enquiries – or, as HMRC now term them, ‘compliance checks’ – into tax returns are typically a fairly routine matter.
Accelerated Payment Notices (APNs)
There is very real concern regarding the legality of HMRC demands, in particular the issue of Accelerated Payment Notices (APNs). We have been leading the way in ensuring that HMRC only seek to collect tax where they have a legal right to do so. If you or a client has received an APN, we have the relevant knowledge and experience to offer objective advice as to whether or not the tax demanded of you is legally due.
