HMRC enquiries are better targeted and are being undertaken with an unprecedented level of detail and persistence. In 2018/19, the total tax revenue increased by £22bn to £627.9bn with compliance activity yielding £34.1bn – a 12.5% increase in additional tax on 2017/18.

Even if you’ve done nothing wrong, anyone can be selected. No business is too small or too large for HMRC to challenge.

The cost of defending yourself professionally is potentially huge; enquiries are taking longer and the defence costs are increasing.  Even when the outcome of the enquiry results in no adjustments to your tax position, the cost of the defence can be just as costly.

The solution

We provide a valuable Tax investigations service which enables us to defend you in the unfortunate case that you are selected for an enquiry without worrying about the cost. We are confident that the service delivers comprehensive protection against any potential fees arising from professional representation in the event of an HMRC enquiry. Whilst no-one can prevent an investigation, here at William Duncan we can provide our clients with a tax investigations package which will remove concerns about the rising costs of enquiries and ensure they receive the best defence to protect their tax position.

We’ve put together a comprehensive Guide to illustrate the issues.
