Tax Investigations

Tax Investigations

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. Presenting your side of the investigation

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.

"Good customer service and being prompt with communication"

I moved over to Avery Clifton after being with my previous accountant for a long time. I then found out what I had been missing in an accountant all these years - good customer service and being prompt with communication.

From the get go, Avery Clifton have been responsive to my changing tax situation, handling every aspect of my business efficiently.  


"They were always on hand to answer my endless questions, willing to go above and beyond"

Avery Clifton has undertaken work for me which required sifting through volumes of data, analysing it and presenting it in a way that was acceptable to HMRC. They were always on hand to answer my endless questions, willing to go above and beyond.

I was updated at every stage, there was never a time I had to ask what was happening with my case.


"Avery Clifton explain things in a really easy to understand manner"

I have been using Avery Clifton and their legal associates for a number of years for my company and feel confident that my accounts are in capable hands. They explain things in an easy to understand manner. 

The charges are reasonable with a clear pricing system. I'm glad that I found them and have gone on to recommended them to my clients.


"They've been marvelous with my business and also my other non-business issues"

After been charged for every meeting with my previous accountant, I found Avery Clifton and realised that this was not the norm.

They have been marvelous with my business and they have also taken care of my other non-business issues.

Not only have I found an excellent accountant, but also someone very kind and caring.
