What is a tax investigation?

HMRC has the right to check your tax affairs at any point to ensure you pay the right amount of tax – both now and historically.

How would I be chosen for an HMRC Investigation?

With an estimated tax gap of £35 billion between what HMRC should collect and what it does, there is increasing pressure for HMRC to recoup this shortfall. This is especially critical now, given the vast sums of money the government has spent over the past 18 months to stabilise the economy.

HMRC identify and target areas where they believe tax is a risk. They use sophisticated software to check a wide range of data sources and look for any anomalies or triggers such as consistently submitting tax returns with errors, continually filing tax returns late, your costs or expenses are unusual and may be above the industry norm, or you report a large increase or decrease in income, but ultimately anyone can be chosen.

Personal Tax Clients £120
Sole Traders (Not VAT Registered) £150
Sole trader (VAT registered) £180
