HMRC investigations and proceedings
HMRC have become increasingly keen to ensure that no detriment to the public purse is incurred as a result of the way in which individuals and companies conduct their tax affairs. Where concerns surrounding tax affairs do arise, they are swift to intervene and pursue individuals involved in the civil and criminal courts as well as the tax tribunal.

We have established relationships with experienced accounts who we often work in conjunction with, when assisting client’s with issues involving HMRC.
