Tax enquiries
A tax enquiry can be a stressful time. We try to ease the strain for you in our dealings with the tax authorities. Of course you remain responsible for your own affairs, but we can handle the conduct of the enquiry and help protect your rights as well as advise you of your responsibilities. An HMRC tax enquiry can take many different forms. It may be:

  • A random enquiry.
  • An enquiry into a particular aspect of your (or your company’s) tax return, which could be dealt with relatively simply or which could be a more technical matter.
  • A full enquiry into all your tax affairs for one or more years including, in particular, a detailed review of your the books and records of your business.
  • A PAYE routine visit or an in-depth enquiry.
  • A “serious” investigation, including one by the Special Compliance Office which could be an enquiry into irregularities or into a significant technical matter.

Whatever the nature of the tax enquiry it is important that you are well advised. You cannot, unfortunately, rely on the tax authorities necessarily to establish the “correct” amount of tax that you may owe. Some points are not clear-cut and are open to interpretation – you need to have your affairs negotiated and presented for you in the most favourable light.

For VAT registration we can assist with…

  • Advising if you need to or if it would be beneficial to register;
  • Completion of the VAT registration forms and formalities;

VAT Returns
Compliance with VAT is complex. Investigations by the Vatman can be intense – all the more important that your VAT returns are completed correctly. There are three methods we can use to assist in completion of VAT returns…

  • 1. Let us do your book-keeping and we complete the return from there;
  • 2. Give us your books and we’ll complete the return for you;
  • 3. Provide training on how to complete your return.

We complete VAT returns in good time to ensure you avoid any penalties
