Tax Disputes

The UK boasts one of the most advanced and effective tax systems in the world, contributing to a healthy and dynamic economy.

The vast majority of businesses and individuals make a fair and just contribution, and equally receive the benefits of operating within such a modern and progressive system. Britain’s HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) are, however, also a leader when it comes to collecting and recovering unpaid or underpaid taxes, with a robust approach to tax enquiries and investigations.

If you or your business has found itself at the receiving end of allegations concerning your tax affairs, from the manner in which you have declared your tax and financial records to supposed involvement in complex tax avoidance schemes or even fraud, you will want to know that you have a team of expert tax dispute lawyers on your side.

We recognise how difficult and distracting tax disputes can be for individuals and businesses alike, and will work with you to keep disruption to your day to day affairs at an absolute minimum, regardless of the nature of the dispute.

Although a large number of tax disputes are dealt with through civil proceedings, other investigations may be conducted as criminal proceedings from the outset. HMRC also has the power to upgrade an enquiry into an investigation at any time should they feel that this is the appropriate direction to take. For this reason, it is always advisable to seek the support of a specialist tax lawyer at the earliest opportunity.

Areas we cover

We advise and support clients in a wide range of tax dispute areas both routine and complex including:

  • Appeals against HMRC decisions at First Tier and/or Upper Tax Tribunals
  • Setting aside or defending winding up and bankruptcy petitions
  • General HMRC criminal investigations
  • Code of Practice 8 (COP8) investigations (tax avoidance)
  • Code of Practice 9 (COP9) investigations (formerly Hansard)
  • Undeclared income
  • Offshore tax avoidance/evasion
  • VAT inspections and investigations
  • Capital Gains Tax disputes
  • Corporation Tax disputes
  • Environmental Tax disputes
  • Stamp Duty disputes
  • UK and EU issues

Managing tax and VAT disputes is a unique and complex area of law that requires not only an understanding of the technical aspects of the issues involved but also of the processes and steps which can be followed to resolve the issue as effectively and efficiently as possible, with the aim always being to reach a civil outcome.
