Are you protected in the event of a Tax Investigation?

Are you protected in the event of a Tax Investigation?

HMRC activity is more focused and better targeted than ever before. Investigations are intrusive, costly and time consuming. In 2017/18 HMRC collected £30.3bn from enquiries into self-assessment returns for both individuals and companies. HMRC's Connect System now contains over 22bn lines of data. HMRC claims that any information received by them concerning any individual taxpayer can now be linked to the taxpayer's file in minutes. This enables tax investigators to be proactive and targeted in selecting cases for enquiry, in addition to the thousands of enquiries each year that are chosen entirely at random.

In the event of an enquiry by HMRC it is important that you appoint specialists to defend yourself or your business. The tax investigations team at Jackson Stephen have the experience and expertise to ensure that you only pay the right amount of tax and do not concede to HMRC’s demands without adequate counter-argument. Our team will handle all correspondence, attend meetings with HMRC and ensure that we deal with tax enquiries effectively and efficiently.
