HMRC tax enquiries and records checks

Services » Business Tax » HMRC tax enquiries and records checks

HMRC can conduct business records checks at any time. This can cause great concern for business owners, as they often think they must have done something wrong if HMRC want to come and inspect the business. However most HMRC checks are entirely random and often focus on one of the three main taxes (Corporation Tax, VAT and PAYE).

In most cases the records checks can be dealt with in a few hours. If you engage an accountant to prepare and submit your corporation tax returns, VAT returns, and run your payroll, then your business records will be accurate and transparent. This in turn can make a records check enjoyable: it’s very satisfying to receive the “all clear” from the taxman!

Our experienced staff can help manage the enquiry or records check, and deal with HMRC on your behalf.
