How Can We Help?

Our experienced team takes a proactive approach to cases by actively engaging with HMRC to achieve positive results without the need to resort to costly litigation and thereby reducing any penalties payable.

We can guide you in relation to:

  • understanding the litigation and settlement strategy of HMRC and advising you accordingly
  • making the appropriate disclosures to HMRC and responding to its on-going queries
  • negotiating with HMRC on your behalf to secure favourable repayment terms and reduced penalties
  • the use of ADR by our qualified mediators as a means of settling tax disputes with HMRC 
  • ensuring that the complex disclosure regime is complied with to the satisfaction of HMRC
  • preserving any immunity from criminal prosecution offered by HMRC
  • appropriate and robust representation before the First-tier Tax Tribunal and Upper Tribunal
  • advice on complex cross-border tax issues and work closely with professional advisers based in foreign jurisdictions

We are knowledgeable and experienced in many of the common and recurring features of a HMRC tax investigations including:

  • existence of undeclared offshore funds and assets
  • under declaration of personal income
  • under declaration of business sales
  • suppression of business turnover
  • non-disclosure of worldwide income
  • allegations of fraud central to the tax dispute

Criminal Liability

We guide clients through the complex process of making disclosure of unpaid tax to HMRC. The process can be time consuming and numerous disclosure reports may be required.

If HMRC considers that full disclosure has not been made or that a serious financial offence has been committed, it has the right to withdraw from the civil regime and pursue both corporate and individual clients on a criminal basis.

Our specialist team of white-collar crime defence solicitors are available to assist in any such investigation and prosecution. We are ranked as one of the leading criminal fraud defence firms in the country. 

HMRC Civil Enforcement

We have extensive experience advising corporate and individual clients in relation to enforcement action taken by HMRC.

We actively negotiate and engage with HMRC on behalf of clients to seek an early cost-effective resolution to any tax dispute and avoid enforcement action.

Often in a personal bankruptcy or corporate insolvency, HMRC is the largest creditor and it seeks to use its powers of enforcement to protect its position. 

Our work in this area includes:

Multi-Disciplinary Team

In addition to our own team of award-winning solicitors, we have long-established working relationships with other professionals who we are often required to work in conjunction with on HMRC tax cases including forensic accountants as well as the leading barristers and QCs in the country.
