HMRC do not provide Tax Investigation Support, but rather conduct the Tax Investigations. When HMRC decides to investigate an individual’s or a company’s tax affairs, they follow a defined process:

  1. Notification: HMRC begins by notifying the individual or business that they are under investigation. This is usually done in writing and includes details about what aspects of the tax return are under investigation.

  2. Information Gathering: HMRC then collects information and documentation relevant to the investigation. This could involve asking the individual or business for certain documents or information, or it might involve HMRC gathering information from other sources.

  3. Review and Analysis: The gathered information is then reviewed and analyzed. HMRC checks if the individual or business has correctly reported their income and paid the appropriate amount of tax.

  4. Conclusion: After reviewing the information, HMRC makes a decision. If they find that the individual or business has underpaid their taxes, they will demand payment of the outstanding tax, possibly along with penalties and interest. If they find that the individual or business has accurately reported their taxes, the investigation will be closed.

  4. Strong Representation: You gain strong representation in any dispute with tax authorities, ensuring your interests are protected and giving you the best possible outcome.

  5. Financial Protection: If the service includes fee protection insurance, you could have the costs of professional fees covered, offering substantial financial relief during the investigation process.
