VAT Investigations

Even seemingly innocent errors are routinely treated as potentially serious or fraudulent by HMRC's VAT officers.

In spite of such simple or innocent errors, HMRC takes convincing actions to ensure that more serious behaviour is not taking place.

It is true that HMRC now handles all taxes and duties on a "joined up" basis, but disputes and disagreements with HMRC Officers specializing in VAT still tend to be among the most robust and contentious enforcement actions that we encounter with the agency, often because HMRC Officers fail to recognize their statutory responsibilities.

In more serious VAT matters, we help people who have committed a VAT fraud or serious VAT error to remedy it with HMRC in the most effective and sensitive manner. As much as possible, we help our clients navigate HMRC's complicated processes to minimize their VAT liabilities, interest and penalties.
