Tax dispute resolution
We offer a comprehensive tax dispute resolution service. We provide pre-emptive advice on risk management issues, as well as acting on formal enquiries and investigations by HMRC. Where necessary to achieve the optimal result for clients, we can litigate before all courts. We combine tax technical expertise with a wealth of dispute resolution experience.
Our strength is in providing an independent legal assessment of the prospects of success and in designing a strategy to achieve the best possible result for our clients.
HMRC's published Litigation and Settlements Strategy implies they will not settle for less than 100 per cent of the tax, interest and penalties at stake. In our experience, however, it is often possible to reach a negotiated settlement with HMRC; this is especially the case where there are a number of issues involved.
