The Taxman is coming
The UK Government has tasked HMRC to collect more tax in a bid to close the “tax gap” between what they believe should be collected and the amount actually received. This has led to a number of targeted disclosure opportunities to encourage voluntary settlements and HMRC’s investment in specialist compliance and investigation teams.
If you or your business receives an enquiry notice from HMRC, you can expect it to be more wide ranging, thorough and better informed than in years gone by. As a result, the time and cost of dealing with HMRC’s enquiries can be very significant if they are not handled effectively.
All too often a seemingly innocent approach from HMRC can spiral into a wide ranging and complex investigation. Apart from the financial hardship of any payments on conclusion of the investigation, having to deal with HMRC in “investigation mode” is often a cause of distress for the individuals, businesses and professional advisers involved if they do not have the specialist skills to manage the process.
Seeking expert help at an early stage can have a dramatic effect on the outcome of a tax investigation. The key benefits of using DTE’s help are to bring the investigation to a conclusion quickly and efficiently, while minimising any exposure to additional tax liabilities, interest and penalties.
DTE has an outstanding reputation in this field and we provide tax investigation support to over 300 accountancy firms across the UK, in addition to individuals, companies and introductions from other professionals.

"I have known Alan for must be nearly 40 years, from my days as a client with another firm that no longer exists till now when he is Head of Tax Dispute Resolution at DTE.
My first full recollection, was when I got a tax demand, which I hadn't got a clue where it was raised from! Eventually Alan found out what it was, through his various contacts, and it turned out my dear wife had had a motorbike accident, banked the money, and never declared it. From that time on Alan has acted and still does act for us.
I would recommend him to anyone for tax advice and football!
For us he is always very thorough, concise and great to have him on our side, and a friend as well!"
