Voluntary Disclosures

A voluntary disclosure may be required in a wide range of circumstances, varying from a single careless mistake in a tax return through to scenarios where there has been a history of deliberate failures that need to be addressed.

HMRC look favourably on taxpayers who make voluntary disclosures as they have taken the proactive step of notifying HMRC of any failures.

As a result, the penalties charged in relation to a voluntary disclosure are lower than those levied as a result of a ‘prompted’ HMRC investigation, i.e. one in which they have instigated and opened an enquiry. It is therefore imperative that taxpayer’s take the first step in disclosing such information to HMRC, before an investigation is commenced.

There are a whole range of voluntary disclosure options that exist and our team has assisted numerous clients to make voluntary disclosures to HMRC and we therefore have the experience to select the most appropriate disclosure method and then guide you through this process should this option be required.
