HMRC Tax Investigations & Disputes

Nobody wants a tax investigation, and nobody welcomes a visit from a tax inspector, however there comes a time for most businesses and individuals when they find themselves under HMRC’s spotlight.

When a tax investigation happens it can be worrying and can also present a financial threat. This is where the team at John Kerr come in as we have significant experience of representing our clients at all stages of the process. 

We will help you prepare for the investigation or visit, represent you in your communications and negotiations with HMRC, and are very used to meeting with Tax Inspectors. 

Without such professional representation, you could easily end up paying more tax than necessary, and in situations where a settlement is required,  we work with our clients to achieve the most positive possible outcome. 

John Kerr’s team has strong experience of successfully representing our clients in relation to numerous HMRC tax investigations, including taking cases to Tribunal.

We can assist with:

  • VAT visits
  • Employer Compliance visits
  • HMRC Disputes
  • HMRC Investigations
  • Voluntary disclosures
  • Employment status enquiries
  • IR35 enquiries
  • ‘Time to pay’ negotiations
  • HMRC formal information powers 

Our clients can also protect against the professional costs of a tax investigation by taking advantage of our fee protection insurance.

Fee Protection Service

We can offer optional fee protection to our clients to guard against the cost of an investigation or dispute.

This protection scheme gives clients the peace of mind of knowing that, should they experience an enquiry or dispute with HMRC, we are able to dedicate the right level of representation without them having to worry about escalating costs.  We are also able to deal with routine VAT and employer compliance visits at our own premises.

Our scheme means our clients receive:

  • Peace of mind
  • Comprehensive scope of cover
  • Professional representation from us, their own accountant
  • No need to accept unreasonable tax charges due to concern over professional fees
  • Access to employment law and business safety advice lines
