Tax Investigation Service

What is a tax investigation?

A tax investigation is when HMRC make enquiries into your tax affairs. This can range from a phone call to a full blown investigation where they will go through the full books and records.

In recent years, we have seen an increase in the number of enquiries, both into individual tax returns and company returns. The tax authorities now have more powers than ever before to investigate UK businesses.

An enquiry or investigation into your tax affairs by HMRC can be disruptive, intrusive and expensive. It can also be a long and time-consuming process, in some cases lasting for a year or more.

Why should I worry - I haven't done anything wrong?

Just because you haven't done anything wrong doesn't mean that you can't be investigated. There doesn’t need to be a reason for HMRC to trigger an investigation. Every taxpayer who submits a tax return is at risk. Whether you win or lose, you always have to pay the cost of handling the investigation, which is over and above our normal fees at DRG Chartered Accountants and the costs involved could be substantial.

We view DRG as a key supplier and crucially a partner and would highly recommend the firm – in particular to other fast growing businesses."

Outdoor Academy

"I have always worked as an employee so when I decided to set up my own business, I did not know where to start. DRG took the time to explain how working as a sole trader would be more beneficial to me setting up a limited company (which I had always thought was a requirement for running a business). They gave me practical advice on the records I need to keep as well as general guidance on setting up my business and helped me claim a large tax refund after my first year of trading."

They have proved the benefits of a local firm with Big 4 experience in providing sound business and tax advice by being accessible, having in-depth knowledge of my business and able to form good working relationships at different levels with me and my staff. We also enjoy the benefit of their excellent accountancy and payroll services. I couldn’t recommend them more highly."
