Tax investigations service

HMRC’s enquiry activity is more focused than ever before. Its Connect System currently selects 9 out of every 10 enquiries and is designed to identify those who may have paid too little tax.  Last year it helped HMRC collect £30.3 billion from compliance activity.  In addition, HMRC continues to increase the number of trained investigation specialists, who use the latest technology and information to target taxpayers of all sizes.  Even if you have done little wrong and have dealt with your tax affairs diligently and accurately the professional costs of dealing with a tax enquiry and demonstrating your innocence can run into thousands of pounds.

How our Tax Investigations Service helps

We can’t prevent HMRC opening an enquiry into your affairs; however we can offer you our Tax Investigations Service. This delivers comprehensive protection against the fees arising from professional representation if you are unfortunate enough to be selected for an enquiry by HMRC. Above all, it ensures that you never need to settle with HMRC simply because of concerns about costs.

We have also arranged for TIS subscribers to receive 24-hour access to a business legal helpline. Available 365 days a year, the team of qualified solicitors and barristers can assist with employment law, health and safety and commercial matters.
