HMRC Corporate Tax Investigations

Corporate tax investigations can range from a simple enquiry into an entry in the accounts, to a full cross taxes enquiry challenging the accuracy of the accounts and tax return.

Full enquiries will almost certainly involve HMRC undertaking a detailed examination of the business' books and records, and may lead to enquiries also being opened into the personal tax affairs of the directors. A full enquiry may also entail HMRC reviewing not only the corporation tax liability, but also any PAYE/NIC or VAT liabilities.

Defending companies subject to such enquiries and acting to ensure that the company and any affected directors only pay what is properly due, is an area where specialist advice is essential.

We would deal with every aspect of the investigation including:

  • providing clarity and formulating a plan to deal with the investigation;
  • handling all communications with HMRC;
  • taking full control of the investigation to give you peace of mind;
  • focusing on working towards the most efficient way to achieve the earliest possible closure of any tax investigation;
  • preparing or reviewing HMRC calculations relevant to your tax affairs to determine any tax liability due as a result of the enquiry; and
  • taking action to minimise interest and penalties.
