HMRC civil investigations

In the context of the post 2008 financial crisis and in the face of reducing tax receipts, HMRC has launched a series of aggressive attacks on alleged tax evasion and avoidance.

High levels of individuals and companies are facing investigation as HMRC attempts to recover billions of pounds in additional undeclared taxes in the UK and offshore.

When faced with a tax compliance check, tax enquiry or tax investigation, The Khan Partnership’s tax investigations team, which includes former senior HMRC employees, can help achieve a swift and cost-effective outcome.

We have decades of experience of handling HMRC enquires and investigations. By opening early discussions and adopting a positive and open approach with HMRC, we have been successful in eliminating litigation, reducing penalties and therefore reducing the costs to clients.

If you have received correspondence from HMRC inviting you to fully declare any unpaid tax through its voluntary disclosure facilities in return for immunity from prosecution, we can guide you through the complex process.

Our team will prepare disclosure reports, address HMRC’s queries and negotiate any potential penalties and repayments to achieve a commercially favourable settlement.

If HMRC believes you are not co-operating fully with the investigation or a serious financial crime has been committed, it may launch a criminal investigation  link to page. The Khan Partnership’s  criminal fraud lawyers have successfully defended numerous criminal investigations and prosecutions achieving excellent results for clients.

Our team can also conduct tax compliance health checks to help mitigate future risk of an investigation or prosecution from HMRC.
