It’s simply good risk management.
We have noticed a more aggressive attitude from HMRC in recent years and we are very concerned about this new approach, especially as this will mean more and more innocent businesses and individuals are likely to be investigated. HMRC do not need a reason to investigate you and they can investigate anyone at random.
At Alanbrookes we recommend to all our clients that they consider taking out our Tax Investigation Service.
We have seen an increase in the number of enquiries raised on individual returns and the tax authorities now have more powers than ever to investigate UK businesses. It can be disruptive, intrusive and expensive when HMRC investigate your affairs. It can also be a long process, in some instances for a year or more, which can lead to spiralling costs.
With the Tax Investigation Service at Alanbrookes we would be available to you with the advice and support you may need during this time, not just the support you can afford.
There does not need to be a reason for HMRC to launch an investigation. Every taxpayer who submits a tax return is at risk of being chosen at any time. Whether you win or lose, you always have to pay the cost of handling the investigation.
An HMRC investigation is a real and present possibility, therefore we want to be able to offer you comprehensive cover with a cost-effective solution. Taking out our Tax Investigation Service costs less than you think and is certainly less than other risk management measures that you can pay routinely each year. A small cost now could save you thousands of pounds in the future.
