Tax investigations

HMRC have taken significant steps over the last year to clamp down on tax avoidance, investing heavily in sophisticated data mining and interrogation technologies. Thanks to the Common Reporting Standards (CRS), tax authorities the world over now share financial information of both individuals and companies.

The Revenue’s access to information and investigative capabilities are now more advanced than ever before. Being the subject of a HMRC investigation or enquiry can be very disruptive and frustrating and is not something you should tackle alone. 

Our team

Our team of tax investigation specialists understand the stress and anxiety HMRC interventions can cause. With several years of experience working at either a senior level within HMRC or settling enquiries within professional practice, we act quickly to secure the best results and successfully resolve disputes with HMRC.

Understanding the tax inspector allows us to anticipate HMRC’s actions and respond to them effectively. We tailor our services to meet your unique needs, whether this involves using your right to appeal against penalties and judgements, or includes cases involving suspected tax fraud under the contractual disclosure facility.

How can RSM help?

If you are concerned about an undeclared tax problem, our team can help you secure the best possible outcome. We understand how to move disputes forward and what scope there is to settle open cases. This can have a significant impact on the amount of any penalty and the number of years for which HMRC will seek to collect tax. 

We have a tax investigations representative in all our office locations, closely supported by a panel of dedicated specialists.
