Do you need support with a tax dispute?
From time to time there may be a disagreement between the taxpayer and HMRC. Sometimes it is the facts of the case that are in question but it is also often the legislation itself that is in question. Tax isn’t always black and white and where this is the case we are happy to argue your case in the strongest possible terms. We have the specialist tax knowledge to assist with a wide range of tax disputes.
Disputes can arise in all sorts of areas outside of full enquiries and investigations
Employment status disputes
Repairs v capital disputes
Private usage adjustments
Capital allowances – is it plant or property?
Settlements legislation – the classic husband and wife company scenario
Valuations for tax purposes
Is it a trading activity?
VAT segregation of businesses to avoid registration
- Employee benefit disputes
What is involved in a Tax Investigation?
It is an unfortunate fact of business life that 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 is not a pleasant experience for anyone. Without expert defence it is possible to get trampled all over.
Whilst with random investigations anyone can come under enquiry, you can help to avoid the chance of an investigation into your affairs for other reasons. We know the triggers that often give rise to enquiries if not fully explained to HMRC when submitting Returns to them.
Don’t take the risk, get covered with Fee Protection?
HMRC has powers to investigate income tax and corporation tax payers at random. With the ever increasing risks of full tax enquiries and investigations, it’s worth considering protecting yourself from the accountancy costs of dealing with it as the amount of work involved is often substantial. We cannot prevent you from being investigated by the Taxman, but we can help to ensure that you get the best possible support and advice without having to worry about the cost.
You can get cover for the following
PAYE & benefits enquiries
Even if HMRC finds nothing as a result of any investigation, you will still have unexpected professional fees to pay as a result.
