Tax Investigations Specialists

What We Do

London Tax Network is a tax investigations and HMRC dispute resolution consultancy. Interventions by HMRC can be expensive, stressful and intrusive. We take the stress out of the situation by resolving disputes swiftly and with a mutually agreeable settlement. We liaise with HMRC and the client to respond to HMRC’s queries in a timely and appropriate manner, ensuring that responses are sufficient to allay HMRC’s concerns and with a view to resolution without delay.

Our expertise means we know when HMRC are overstepping their limits and how best to protect the client. We are also able to engage with advisers and assist them “behind the scenes” to resolve disputes.

Our areas of expertise:

  • Tax investigations and enquiries;
  • Code of Practice 9 (civil investigation of fraud) investigations;
  • Responses to Schedule 36 information notices and informal information requests;
  • Negotiating tax penalties, standalone or as part of the enquiry or investigation;
  • Advising on “whitespace” additions to tax returns to minimise the risk of enquiry;
  • Voluntary disclosures to HMRC.
