Tax Investigation Service
Anyone can be investigated by HMRC

HMRC Can Investigate Anyone

Targeted tax campaigns are becoming more popular as the government combats tax avoidance and evasion.

The HMRC currently conducts over 80% of tax queries through a single database called “Connect.” The system collects data from 30 sources to discover any possible anomalies that may be important to an inquiry.

Whatever the enquiry, it makes sense to seek expert advice early. We can support you and manage any communication with the HMRC during the process.

Who is at risk

Our low cost fixed tax investigations package ensures that you get the best possible defence without worrying about being landed with a hefty bill at the end. In addition, our service promise offers comprehensive protection against any professional accountancy fees arising from the representation of an HMRC enquiry. Some recent tax investigation statistics are below:

Small businesses

Small businesses

Small businesses play a vital role in the UK economy, representing 95% of all companies and employing around 14 million people.

Despite a £35m reduction in HMRC’s compliance activity spend, the tax yield from small businesses increased by £200m to £5.6bn.

Mid-sized businesses

Mid-sized businesses

HMRC has been targeting large businesses for many years. Now, it’s focusing more on investigating small and mid-sized businesses to increase tax revenues.

During 2018/19, the HMRC raised more than £ 4bn from mid-sized businesses – up 14% from 2018/19.

Large businesses

Large businesses

Large businesses generated an additional £.10bn compliance yield for HMRC.

By spending an extra £25m on compliance work in 2018/19, HMRC recouped £1bn in additional tax – a return of £40 for every extra £1 spent on compliance.



Individuals produced an additional tax yield of £2.4bn from taxpayers with less than £150,000 in annual income and under £1m in total assets.

Wealthy individuals

Wealthy individuals

Wealthy individuals yielded £1.8bn from an estimated £145m spent on compliance activity.

This equates to an 80% increase in tax generated for only an additional 7.5% spent by HMRC.

Our full tax investigation service starts at just £7.50+vat per month
