Tax enquiries and tax investigations support

For business owners, it’s an unavoidable reality that your company may become the subject of a tax enquiry or investigation by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

The same also applies to individuals in respect of their personal Tax Returns.

Such investigations can be initiated by HMRC either completely at random or for specific reasons.

At Balanced Accounting, we’ve received detailed training on how to handle investigations by HMRC and have previous experience of working on their enquiries. We know how HMRC approaches the process, we know what they are and are not allowed to ask you and we have access to the same internal guidelines manuals as their inspectors.

So if you or your company are unlucky enough to find yourselves the subject of a tax investigation, we’re ideally placed to help guide you through the process.

We can accompany you in all meetings with HMRC staff, explaining at each stage how the investigation works and what to expect, whilst also guarding against the possibility of lines being inadvertently crossed.

It’s worth mentioning that if you’ve chosen in advance of events to be covered by our tax enquiry fee protection insurance scheme, then all of our fees for dealing with any investigation would be covered by the insurance company.

The old adage that prevention is better than cure also applies to HMRC tax enquiries. Clearly, neither of us can do anything to prevent you becoming the subject of a random enquiry.

However, when submitting returns for our Corporation Tax and Self Assessment Tax Return clients, we’re always on the lookout for points that could potentially trigger an enquiry if not explained at greater length within your initial return.

By addressing such issues at source, we seek to minimise the scope for unnecessary enquiries and their related direct and indirect costs.

Looking back at how Hazel has managed our accounts since 2010, it is hard to imagine how we managed before without her pro-active and unquestionably professional guidance. Whilst always coming across as friendly and approachable on a day-to-day basis, Hazel / Balanced Accounting provides efficient expertise and an invaluable service to our company.

Graeme Hall / ifour

I found Hazel via her helpful replies on a UK business forum. I was specifically looking for a switched-on, friendly accountant who understood how an agile, modern online business operates. Her forum replies echoed the experience I have had since choosing Balanced Accounting - calm, knowledgeable, patient and fully in control. I have come to rely on Hazel completely and am very happy to do so. Highly recommended and a breath of fresh air!

Hazel has provided our companies with a superb service. We decided to use Balanced Accounting because of their ethical approach and have been delighted with what they have achieved for us and their very friendly and personal touch. As people new to the world of limited companies they have guided us every step of the way and made our accounting very easy to manage. We could not have asked for more.

Hazel Wells at Balanced Accounting works for us as Company Secretary and accountant for our estate management company. Quite a complex set up in a small way, but the work has been done with speed, efficiency and, in some tricky situations, a good deal of diplomacy. As a small organisation the personal touch is very evident and very welcome.
