Protecting yourself from an HMRC investigation

A tax investigation is stressful, time consuming and usually very expensive. And it could easily happen to you.

HMRC’s investigations are more focused than ever before. During the tax year 2017-18, the tax man collected over £30 billion through ‘compliance activity’.

Special investigators are using high tech methods to gain information and maximise tax revenues. For example, they review the innocent enquiries people make, and then look into whether they’ve paid too little tax. Even if you’ve done nothing wrong, you can be selected at random.
