Tax disputes

How we can help with tax disputes

Unfortunately, a substantial proportion of business owners will have a disagreement with HMRC about how much tax they have to pay, so these disputes have to be resolved quickly and efficiently.  Its often the facts of the case that are questioned, or the legislation itself.  We can deal with disputes on your behalf, to gain the best outcome possible.

Disputes can arise in all sorts of extents outside of full enquiries and investigations:

  • Is it a trading activity?
  • Repairs v capital disputes
  • Private usage adjustments
  • Capital allowances – is it plant or property?
  • Settlements legislation – the classic husband and wife company scenario
  • IR35
  • Valuations for tax purposes
  • VAT segregation of businesses to avoid registration.
  • Employee benefit disputes.
  • Employment status disputes.

Whatever the nature of the tax dispute we have the expertise and knowledge to help.
