HMRC is increasing its attention on both individuals and businesses to ensure that they are paying the “right amount of tax”. Over the past few years HMRC have made considerable investment into their IT systems and increased levels of staff who are focused on tax investigations.
Businesses and individuals could be selected for a random tax enquiry regardless of whether they have done anything wrong. Even if HMRC do not find any errors, a basic tax enquiry can be time consuming and therefore a distraction from running your business and could typically cost several thousands of pounds to deal with.
