HMRC Enquiries, Investigations and Powers

What can you expect from the latest issue: articles include:


  • Mark McLaughlin highlights recent cases involving penalties with professional assistance.
  • Geoff Lloyd and Amy Smith provides an overview of HMRC's information powers and how they are used in practice.

  • HMRC enquiries and related issues
  • ‘Serious’ civil investigations (i.e. Code of Practice 9 and the contractual disclosure facility)
  • HMRC powers with particular emphasis on those powers commonly associated with the other two categories (e.g. discovery, information notices, accelerated payment notices, etc.) 
  • Tax avoidance scheme enquiries 
  • Disclosure campaigns 
  • Tax fraud
