If you have been advised that you are to be subject to a tax
investigation of any sort then DO NOT respond to HMRC in any way, phone,
fax, email or letter, until you clearly understand your position.
Responding to them without this knowledge could cost you your
business and even possibly a criminal conviction, so make sure that you
absolutely understand this. A tax investigation and the consequences
can be serious so, don’t do anything without the right information.
Has your accountant helped you get ready for this?
Tax investigations are something that many accountants will deal with
very rarely, and so they have limited practical experience in briefing
clients and preparing them to defend their position.
An accountant experienced in investigations should have warned you it
was a possibility, offered you fee protection insurance, and taken you
step by step through the likely process.
If not, questions need to be asked.
So if you are not 100% sure that the advice that you have is the best
it could be then don’t go with it out of loyalty. Put your business
future first and seek experienced professional help.
When you call us, you can be absolutely confident that everything you
share with us is absolutely confidential – including the fact that you
have contacted us. We can give you a free, 1 hour consultation to help
prepare you for the investigation and better understand your position.
You are completely free then to choose whether to use or services, go
elsewhere or go it alone.
