A tax investigation or HMRC enquiry into an individual's or company's tax return can be a very stressful time for those unlucky enough to be targeted by the investigative arm of the HMRC.
Tax officials can open a variety of enquiries into a taxpayer’s affairs, ranging from a general enquiry to an in-depth tax fraud investigation.
Our specialist tax team includes ex-HMRC staff whose wealth of experience dealing with all types of HMRC investigation will support and guide you through your case.
We will work with you to obtain the facts and be there to support you at each meeting with HMRC and to guide you through the process. We will ensure the very best outcome and if there are penalties, that you receive full mitigation.
Finally, if HMRC are at fault, we have experience in claiming costs against HMRC to ensure you are in no worse position financially as well as getting compensation payments for the distress that such enquiries can cause.
If you are subject to a tax investigation or wish to take advantage or any one of HMRC's campaigns or even make a voluntary disclosure, we can help you to manage the enquiry to ensure the very best outcome.
As a direct result of [Armstrong Watson's] efforts the penalties which HM Revenue & Customs could impose were reduced as far as possible. This in itself was a great result, however, by far the greatest benefit was knowing that we had Armstrong Watson and Scott assisting us through the process.
