Section 9a Enquiries

HMRC are entitled to enquire into any personal self assessment tax return and will do so via a Section 9a Enquiry. These enquiries will either relate to a specific aspect of the self assessment return or the return as a whole.

In connection with this type of enquiry, we would work closely with you in order to:

  • Gather relevant records and information required to deal with HMRC’s queries;
  • Respond to HMRC disclosing our findings; and
  • Defend your tax position within the constraints of the legislation

From our extensive experience, we find that these types of investigations can be dealt with and closed in a timely manner, where the boundaries are agreed, and the lines of communication with HMRC are clear and regular.
