Our Tax Team has significant experience assisting clients with a range of tax investigatory matters instigated by HM Revenue and Customs ("HMRC"), from initial correspondence or requests for information, to formal enquiries, discovery assessments, stop notices and seizures of assets. We can also advise those who are accused of using tax avoidance schemes or fraud.
Where disputes with HMRC cannot be resolved by internal review, we represent clients before the specialist tax tribunals and UK Courts, and can assist with any associated directors' disqualification proceedings and action under the Insolvency Act 1986.
We also act for importers and exporters of goods on all aspects of their interactions with UK Border Force, including where goods have been detained or seized.
Our specialist team understands the impact of tax investigations and disputes on business operations and on individuals. We provide comprehensive and holistic advice to reduce the risk of litigation where possible, and when litigation is the only viable option, our expert tax lawyers and litigators work together to provide you practical advice.
