HM Revenue & Customs enquiries

As chartered accountants in Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwickshire, we understand that if you are the focus of an HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) enquiry or dispute, you need expert help and support through the process.

Enquiries can vary from questions about a particular aspect of your tax return to a detailed examination of a specific transaction to a full investigation of every aspect of a taxpayer’s affairs.

Our knowledge of tax legislation and compliance, and experience in dealing with HMRC enquiries, mean that we can provide constructive advice and support throughout what can be a stressful process.

You will be able to focus on your day-to-day affairs while we liaise with HMRC inspectors to bring the investigation to a satisfactory conclusion and negotiate settlements that minimise claims for any tax and penalties.

We can also represent clients before the General and Special Commissioners – the bodies that resolve disputes between HMRC and taxpayers – if settlements cannot be agreed.

Tax Investigation Service

The costs of an HMRC tax investigation are likely to be significant, so we offer the Murphy Salisbury Tax Investigation Service to protect clients from this financial burden.

This service will cover the cost of our professional fees in achieving the best possible outcome for you, if you are subject to an HMRC enquiry.

Our service not only covers your business but also the personal returns of all sole traders, partners and directors for whom we act. The service also includes access to a 24-hour business legal helpline, providing employment, health and safety and commercial advice.
