Did you know?
Many tax enquiries are carried out at random – every taxpayer who submits a tax return is at risk of being targeted, so you could find yourself being questioned, even if you’ve done nothing wrong!
HMRC’s Fraud Investigations Service (FIS), an elite group of tax evasion and tax fraud investigators, are showing an increased capacity to track and trace every single asset. They’ll do everything in their power to crack down on tax incompliance.
“IT WON’T HAPPEN TO ME”
Some of our clients had that optimistic mindset too. That was before they became potential HMRC targets. Without professional support from Fortus, they’d have found it much more difficult to challenge and respond to direct questioning.
So, what type of investigations might you face?
Capital Gains Tax (CGT)
We’ve dealt with numerous queries from HMRC’s specialist CGT staff into personal residence reliefs and 60-day CGT disclosures.
Mortgage interest deductions
HMRC are increasingly questioning whether a property’s considered a residential or commercial property.
Full tax enquiry
This is an extremely thorough investigation, looking at both company and personal accounts. Even if you’ve done nothing ‘wrong’, they can be conducted at random.
These relate to which country an individual has spent time in and where taxes have – or haven’t – been paid.
