Why should I worry - I haven't done anything wrong?
Just because you haven't done anything wrong doesn't mean that you can't be picked on.
There doesn’t need to be a reason for HMRC to trigger an investigation. Every taxpayer who submits a tax return is at risk. No-one is immune.
Win or lose, you always have to pay the cost of handling the investigation, which is over and above our normal fees and the costs involved could be substantial.
Disruptive, intrusive and expensive; when HMRC investigate you or your business it can drag on for a year or more saddling you with spiraling costs and rocketing stress levels.
