Our highly experienced tax solicitors can help you deal with or prepare for an HMRC tax investigation with cost-effective advice, representation and support.
If HMRC suspects that you’ve underpaid tax or under-reported income, they'll initially open enquiries into returns already submitted. In many cases, their enquiries are concluded quickly through correspondence. If not, HMRC can look into your finances with a Code of Practice (COP) 8 or 9 investigation.
UK tax law is always changing and is more complex than ever, especially if you have a large income, complicated international investments, or non-domicile status.
It’s easy to get things wrong and you could face substantial fines, reputational damage, or even criminal charges if you do.
Our highly experienced tax solicitors may be able to help you avoid and mitigate tax penalties by:
- Assessing tax risk
- Dealing with HMRC correspondence
- Advising on how to respond to HMRC enquiries
- Assisting with voluntary and involuntary tax disclosures
- Representing you at meetings
- Negotiating penalties
- Preparing for civil or criminal litigation in courts or tribunals
- Keeping your personal tax information private.
If you’re facing a tax investigation, you should seek legal help as soon as possible to reduce the risk of heavy penalties. However, our tax lawyers can get involved at any point – even if you’re under investigation already or simply want to prepare in case you’re targeted.
We can also advise individuals, businesses, or trusts on regulatory and compliance issues to help prevent investigations happening in the first place.
Our team of tax solicitors are experienced with all forms of tax investigations, as well as the civil or criminal litigation that sometimes follows. We regularly deal with HMRC and related government authorities and have a large roster of talented tax specialists that we can call on to consult on your case.
The quicker you respond to a tax investigation the better – contact us online or phone us on 0370 1500 100 and make sure you’re as well prepared as possible.
