When the “brown letter” hits the mat, some people automatically fall into panic mode. With demands under Schedule 36 allowing HMRC to potentially turn up unannounced and delve back many years, these requests for detailed information can seem intrusive and overwhelming.
HMRC have an obligation to protect the Treasury from fraud and evasion of tax and with new legislative powers available to them, along with an increased budget for Enforcement and Compliance, we expect enquiries to increase over the coming years.
Our team of specialist advisors are able to manage enquiries from initial correspondence, through to tribunal if required. HMRC are not omni potent and are bound by the law just as the taxpayer. In certain instances enquiries have been halted before they began simply because the window for an assessment had passed, or the enquiry notice itself was erroneous.
If you have received an enquiry letter or are already dealing with an investigation by HMRC, contact us today to ensure you understand your rights throughout the process and manage the matter to a swift and agreeable conclusion.
We provide assistance and advice on:
- Discovery Assessments
- Full Enquiry
- Aspect Enquiry
- Cross Tax Enquiries
- Accelerated Payment Notices
- Common Reporting Standard
