Tax investigations

HMRC hold an unprecedented level of information on UK businesses and taxpayers which they are using to carry out an increasing number of tax investigations and collect additional tax revenues.

The experienced team at Markel Tax understands the inner workings of HMRC and can assist with every stage of an enquiry to mitigate the impact on those most affected.  We pride ourselves on our honest and straightforward approach to these matters and our ability to successfully resolve HMRC tax disputes.

Help and assistance available

We help individuals and businesses selected for investigation and specialise in the following areas:

  • Code of Practice 9 enquiries (suspected serious tax fraud) including the Contractual Disclosure Facility (CDF)

  • Code of Practice 8 enquiries such as tax planning and avoidance

  • HMRC compliance activity into individuals, partnerships and companies

  • Employer Compliance Reviews 

  • CJRS/SEISS/EOTHO enquiries

  • Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

  • Worldwide Disclosure Facility (WDF) for disclosures of offshore income and gains

  • Disclosures under the Let Property Campaign (LPC)

  • Voluntary disclosures

  • Disguised Remuneration cases

  • High Volume Agent reviews (Sharing Risk Concerns letters)

  • Certain statutory and non-statutory clearances

The process

The Markel Tax team will initially provide a complimentary initial discussion and assessment of the case.

Following this stage, where the adviser or client wishes to engage our services, we will discuss the options available together with the scope of the work required and agree the way forward. Only then is a formal engagement document completed and work commenced.

Our focus is always on getting the best possible outcome for our clients.
