We understand that an enquiry by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) can be disruptive, whatever the issue. We take the strain of the investigation so the client can continue to focus on their personal and business affairs.
There are a bewildering number of avenues open to HMRC to collate information on businesses and risk assess whether there is tax at risk. We understand how HMRC works and conducts every stage of an enquiry so we can effectively and proactively limit the damage.
Our mission is to resolve the issues for the past and put things right for the future, by providing practical and innovative solutions.
We specialise in:
- Code of Practice 9 enquiries (Suspected Serious Tax Fraud);
- Code of Practice 8 enquiries (Cases other than Suspected Serious Tax Fraud);
- Civil Investigation of Fraud enquiries;
- Charities Assets and Residence enquiries; and
- Local Compliance enquiries.
We also have a vast amount of experience representing clients participating in the Liechtenstein Disclosure Facility (LDF). This applies to people resident in the UK with assets overseas that wish to bring their tax affairs up to date. The main benefits are:
- HMRC only seeks to recover taxes for years commencing on or after 6 April 1999;
- The penalty is limited to 10% of the tax unpaid;
- HMRC guarantees immunity from prosecution for the offences covered by the facility; and
- There is no need to meet with HMRC.
HMRC fully supports and promotes the LDF as a pragmatic and practical way for people to put their tax affairs in order.
