Settling your tax dispute with HMRC in good time and achieving the right outcome

A challenge from HMRC is often distressing and it is important to appoint an experienced professional, familiar with how HMRC operates, to handle the dispute and achieve the right outcome. Without the right adviser a dispute can be unresolved for many years and costly both in terms of professional fees and the ultimate monetary settlement of tax, interest and penalties.

Our Approach

We will undertake a comprehensive review to fully understand the background and key issues relating to the dispute and then recommend a strategy for dealing with the dispute which usually starts with making contact with the relevant parties, HMRC for example.

Our understanding of the structure of HMRC allows us to direct our communication to the correct place and quickly agree an approach with HMRC.

Our work typically involves regular meetings with HMRC, our clients and other professional advisers and preparation of comprehensive technical reports for submission to HMRC or the Courts.
