HMRC Investigations and Enquiries

Being the subject of a tax investigation or enquiry by HMRC can be a stressful and worrying experience.

We have a wealth of experience in dealing with HMRC investigations, whether they are enquiries into an individual’s Tax Return, more detailed enquiries into a company’s affairs or employer-related investigations into PAYE and P11d compliance. If you are the subject of an investigation, we can provide expert help and support.

Call us if HMRC asks you to use the Worldwide Disclosure Facility. You will need to provide detail on your tax affairs over several years and HMRC expects you to calculate your own tax bill for past years and to self-assess the penalty you should pay. For many, this is unrealistic and you are likely to need professional help.

An investigation can occur without necessarily any obvious reason. The costs of defending yourself against HMRC fall on the taxpayer (even if you are wholly exonerated) and can run into tens of thousands of pounds. This unexpected cost could coincide with additional tax to pay. TsH therefore operates a scheme that clients may join under which the professional costs of making a defence are covered (subject to Terms and Condition). Ask about this and we will explain how it works and provide examples of the benefits.
