HMRC are carrying out more tax enquiries into taxpayers’ affairs that ever before.
These investigations with HMRC can be extremely stressful, time consuming and a very worrying experience. A major enquiry can take a long time to resolve and seriously disrupt a business and potentially be very intrusive.
Whilst most tax investigations begin because HMRC have reasons to believe that some aspect of a tax return for an individual or a business is incorrect. HMRC do also select at random a proportion of tax returns for review every year.
In some cases where minor amounts of income have been undeclared or where there are some small errors on a return, this can normally be resolved relatively easily with a few telephone calls and some exchange of letters.
However, where tax evasion (the deliberate failure to pay taxes) has been carried out, or yet more serious action of tax fraud (wilfully attempting to evade payment of taxes) has occurred, HMRC make extensive enquiries including requesting information from banks, accountants and other third parties to aid their investigation.
