HMRC 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 tax investigations, including taking cases to Tribunal.

We can assist with:

  • VAT visits

    HMRC Investigations
  • Voluntary disclosures
  • Employment status enquiries
  • IR35 enquiries
  • ‘Time to pay’ negotiations

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