HW Tax Compliance

Handling a meeting with HMRC

Facing a tax investigation? Need to make a disclosure to HMRC? Don’t worry. One of our team will be able to help. Just get in touch.

Is a meeting necessary?

Meetings can be time consuming and inconvenient.  Always consider whether a meeting with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is necessary or not.

An alternative may be to correspond in writing, allowing time to carefully consider the answers to questions.

If you do choose to meet with HMRC, be aware that how you conduct yourself at the meeting may dictate how the future unfolds.

Mind your language!

You should bear in mind that the English language is sometimes subject to being misconstrued.  This is particularly likely if you are feeling under pressure in a meeting and not communicating at your best.

Prior to the meeting take time to consider what you want to say.  During the meeting make sure that your answers are always clear, concise and accurate.

What happens next

Meetings can cover a number of areas quickly and can clarify matters efficiently.  However, any advantage gained can be quickly lost if there is no clear way forward at its conclusion.

We can attend a meeting with you to ensure that it is properly conducted and to help give clear direction as to what happens next.

If  you wish to discuss this or any other matter with a member of the team, please contact us.
