Tax dispute resolution

Reducing the impact of a current or future tax investigation

Expert support when you really need it

A tax enquiry can happen to anyone, at any time. Whether you’re a sole trader, company, partnership, trustee, executor, charity or individual taxpayer, you could be subject to a random or targeted tax investigation.

Sometimes errors come to light that HMRC need to be told about so that they can be mitigated.

As a business owner and employer, your company may be at risk of examination of its P11D returns of benefits, or PAYE or NIC audits. If you are a VAT-registered business, HMRC may arrange a visit to check your VAT records which could lead to further investigations.

If you find yourself in any of these situations, you will want to resolve them with as little stress and disruption as possible. We will provide expert specialist representation to bring your tax affairs fully up to date.

Ready for a range of challenges

We’re here to help in a timely and proactive manner, whether you’re currently facing a tax investigation or want to prevent problems in the future.
