HMRC Enquiries & Voluntary Disclosures

Do you have previously unreported income or gains? Are you subject to an HMRC enquiry?

The PD Tax team understand that corresponding with HMRC can be daunting and have helped many clients deal with tax investigations and disclosures.

HMRC continues to crack down on tax non-compliance, and with increased resources for gathering information from different states and financial institutions it is important that enquiries and disclosures are dealt with promptly and in a professional manner.

Disclosures

Where you have previously unreported income or gains and are keen to settle your tax affairs, we can provide advice regarding the most appropriate avenue for pro-active disclosure, consider whether a disclosure can be made under one of HMRC’s targeted campaigns, prepare the relevant documentation, and negotiate with HMRC in order to secure the best possible result for you and your business.

There are currently two HMRC campaigns targeted at a specific taxpayer group or type of activity:

  1. Let Property Campaign – aimed at landlords with undisclosed rental income
  2. Card Transaction Programme – aimed at businesses who accept credit or debit card payments but have not registered with HMRC and/or have failed to declare all income.

If a disclosure does not fall within one of the above campaigns, a disclosure can be made under the Digital Disclosure Service, or under the Worldwide Disclosure Facility for offshore tax issues.

Enquiries

If HMRC have enquired into you or your business’ tax affairs, we can support you throughout the process and liaise with them on your behalf to ensure that any misunderstandings are resolved and that your best interests are protected.

We have dealt with enquiries in the full range of taxes, including enquiries through:

  • Specialist Investigations
  • HMRC Local Compliance
  • Code of Practice 9
  • Code of Practice 8
  • Offshore Coordination Unit
