Tax Disputes & Investigations

Tax isn’t always black and white

Inevitably from time to time, there will be disagreement between the taxpayer and HMRC. Where this is the case we have the specialist tax knowledge to argue your case in the strongest possible terms.

Unfortunately, you may well come under enquiry by HMRC through no fault of your own or of your accountant. HMRC now investigates businesses at random as well as for specific reasons. A full investigation can be daunting, disruptive and expensive.

We have the time, expertise and flexibility to assist you in answering HMRC’s questions and demonstrate that you are paying the correct amount of tax.

Our tax fee protection insurance protects against the costs we incur in dealing with a tax enquiry on your behalf.
