Tax Investigations: Get the right support

Keep on top of an enquiry

With government looking to raise extra finance to plug the hole in its deficit, HMRC investigations are increasing in numbers and scope. Without the right support, an enquiry can extrapolate into other areas, spiralling out of control and leaving a bitter financial trail.

Case study: How Avery Clifton assisted a client

  • Client sold a number of rental properties over many years without disclosing the relevant information to HMRC via their tax returns.

  • HMRC issued a notice to tax the gain as a capital gain resulting in the client being taxed at 40%, along with the penalties.

  • We successfully contested client was engaged in trade so liable to corporation tax rather than capital gains tax. We were able to show a loss, resulting in 0% tax due.
