DNS has dealt with Self Assessment tax return investigation cases coming under Section 9A of the Taxes Management Act 1970, where HMRC is entitled to look into any personal tax return. First the tax office send you a written notice quoting Section 9A, which you must not ignore and then you must respond with the information they request.
While a notice from HMRC might mean a routine enquiry which can be resolved fairly quickly with supporting records, it could just as easily become a more serious investigation under Code of Practice (COP) 8 or COP 9 if tax avoidance or fraud is suspected.
DNS immediately spring into action, providing expert advice on the logistics of the enquiry, collating all the information and representing you at any meetings you are called to. You will even get legal representation should you require it.
Case history: Mona, a freelance, received a letter from HMRC to say they wished to look into her Self Assessment accounts for the last five years. Luckily, she’d recently taken out DNS Tax Investigation Insurance, because when she’d first become freelance Mona did not keep her accounts in such good order although she’s got a lot better over the last two years. DNS rectified the situation for Mona and brought her accounts into good order ready to be submitted; we then liaised with HMRC on her behalf to bring the investigation to a good conclusion.
