The number of people and businesses being investigated by the various tax authorities has increased significantly. This is regarded as a convenient way to maximise tax revenue without raising tax rates.
Whilst any individual who completes a tax return could find themselves under investigation, the vast majority of investigations carried out affect owner-managed businesses.
Investigations can be extremely stressful and are potentially costly.
We use our expertise and experience to safeguard you during an investigation and help you by:
minimise the tax and interest being demanded and negotiate the lowest penalty
assist in avoiding potential prosecution
highlight missed tax planning opportunities and ensure the same errors are not repeated
Ideally you should seek advice at the earliest possible stage in an investigation, although we can help even in the later stages.
