HMRC has committed to collecting nearly £1 billion of additional tax revenue annually by 2020-21. Some of this will no doubt be through tax investigations.
Facing a tax investigation can be stressful, disruptive and feel intrusive. With it becoming ever easier to collect data, the amount of information HMRC has on businesses and individuals is vast. The introduction of Making Tax Digital, which will further increase data capital for HMRC, is likely to lead to more investigations still.
Being suspected of tax evasion can be daunting but HMRC does not always get it right. The danger is that you agree to an unnecessary investigation, resulting in wasted time, expense and avoidable stress.
