Tax Investigations

Over recent years, increasing pressure has been placed upon HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) to crack down on tax evasion and investigate any businesses or individuals who are potentially failing to comply with the full extent of their tax obligations. International tax regimes, such as the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) are further contributing to an atmosphere where intelligence gathering and formal investigations into tax affairs are becoming commonplace.

The expert team of tax lawyers at CH Legal has helped many individuals and companies who have faced investigation by HMRC for suspected tax discrepancies, so we understand all the ins and outs.

Comprehensive legal advice when you need it most

Here at CH Legal, we believe that prevention is always better than cure, so we provide tax compliance “health checks” and FATCA risk assessments to individuals and businesses which are concerned they might be at risk of investigation – or simply for peace of mind.

But if a formal investigation is unavoidable, we also provide the full range of legal advice and representation, including:

●    preparing and negotiating tax disclosure
●    help with responding to an HMRC investigation under the Contractual Disclosure Facility (CDF)
●    assisting with HMRC anti-avoidance enquiries and criminal investigations
●    helping tax advisers and accountants to prevent and resolve disputes on behalf of their clients
