Tax enquiries

An enquiry by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) can be a serious disruption and may take a long time to resolve.

Even if you are happy that your accounting records are sound and your tax affairs are all in order, this does not mean that you will not be selected for enquiry.

Increased risk of a tax investigation

With the Government looking to reduce the massive national debt it is likely that there will be even more pressure on HMRC to bring in additional monies to the Exchequer. Add to that the far-reaching powers of inspection granted to HMRC since 2009 and it is likely to mean that tax enquiries will be more complex than ever, subsequently increasing the costs of representation.

Our tax investigation service is the solution

The Thomas Coombs tax investigations service is designed to reimburse the costs of your defence in the event that you are selected for enquiry, whilst at the same time providing you with the best possible representation and assurance that you won’t have to concede to the Revenue’s demands on a purely commercial basis.

We strongly advise that clients subscribe to the service as tax enquiries can cost many thousands of pounds and take several years to settle. Each year HMRC collect an additional £12 Billion through compliance activities and all taxpayers are at risk.

Additional benefits

As an additional benefit, all business clients who subscribe to our service also have 24 hour access to a Business and Commercial Legal Helpline; this is a valuable service available to subscribers at no additional cost. This helpline is manned by over 70 specialist lawyers who can provide advice on employment law, health & safety and commercial issues.
