If HM Revenue & Customs choose you or your company for investigation, there’s no need to panic – Randall & Payne can help you avoid additional payments or high penalties.

Our Promise

Our expert team has many years of experience in dealing with HMRC enquiries and investigations. This includes representing clients in tax tribunals and dealing with the Special Compliance Office – the arm of HMRC that deals with the most serious cases of suspected fraud and can carry out criminal prosecutions.


Cheltenham Tax Investigation Services

If you have been chosen for investigation, our specialists will draw on their expertise to represent you and manage the investigation throughout, keeping you informed at every step:

  • We liaise with HMRC about their enquiry
  • We negotiate tax, interest, penalties and settlement terms with HMRC
  • We prepare all necessary disclosures
  • We represent you in an Alternative Dispute Resolution or Tribunal case if required

Tax enquiries are increasing, we can protect you

Once HMRC decide to investigate your return you have no option but to comply. Early professional representation is essential in quickly and successfully dealing with an enquiry. Even if your affairs are in order, and there may be no additional tax to pay, our fees to support you and your business throughout the enquiry remain.

To help ease the stress of an enquiry and avoid the unbudgeted costs, we offer our Tax Investigation Service to existing clients not under HMRC investigation for a one-off annual fee, which provides for our professional representation for up to £100,000 of fees and free access to My Business Hub.

Why would I be investigated?

There is no definitive answer as to why, but there are a lot of possibilities: filing a later return, errors that require correction, dealing with cash, HMRC receives a tip off, or working in a targeted business sector, to name a few.

HMRC’s Connect database collates data from banks, Land Registry records, Visa and Mastercard transactions, DVLA, council tax, VAT registration documents, Airbnb, and believe it or not even your social media profiles.

How much does an enquiry cost?

Representing you can easily run into thousands of pounds but will vary from enquiry to enquiry, even if no extra tax is paid in the end. Immediate professional representation is essential in successfully and quickly dealing with HMRC enquiries, but that will come at a cost, and will not be in your budget.

My Business Hub – the ultimate digital toolkit and advice line

An online portal for all businesses, provided by the experts at Croner-i, is now included free as part of the Tax Investigation Service. Written documents, policies and procedures supported by expert telephone advice on all areas of employment law, health & safety, and commercial legal.

Not only will you have protection from the risk that you are unfortunate enough to flag up on HMRC’s radar, but My Business Hub adds extra value, whether you’re investigated or not. Everything you need all in one place, including peace of mind.

Cover for all…

Plus, for limited companies and partnerships, the tax investigation service provides inclusive cover for all relevant individuals.

So if your business subscribes to the service, all of your directors, partners and their spouses and company secretaries will also receive representation during an investigation into their personal tax affairs as long as we act for the individuals concerned.

Just spend a little now to potentially save a lot later and take the stress, time and professional costs out of a tax investigation.

Be safe in the knowledge that we will represent you and deal with HRMC on your behalf.
