HMRC Can Investigate Anyone

As the government intensifies its efforts to tackle tax avoidance and evasion, targeted tax campaigns are gaining popularity. The HMRC utilizes a centralized database called “Connect” to handle over 80% of tax queries. This comprehensive system gathers data from 30 different sources to identify any potential irregularities that might be relevant to an investigation.

Regardless of the nature of your inquiry, it is advisable to seek professional guidance at an early stage. We are here to assist you and handle all communication with the HMRC throughout the entire process.
