If a taxpayer feels that HMRC has made mistakes, treated them unfairly, or they have been subject to...
When the HMRC suspects an individual of tax fraud they begin an investigation using the Code of Practice 9 (COP9) procedure to follow out and advance their enquiries. The COP9 is offered to those who HMRC have reason to believe have committed tax fraud or have given reason to trigger further investigation. The COP9 is only given to an individual in certain cases where, up to that date, no criminal proceedings have been enacted. At the point when the COP9 is enacted, the belief that tax fraud in various degrees has been untaken is still speculative; however on receipt of a COP9 it is recommended that an individual uses a professional tax accountant to further their aims in proving no tax fraud has taken place.
Enquires into HMRC’s procedures with the Code of Practice 9 and resulting CDF can be made directly with the HMRC official handling your case or through the appointed accountant working on your behalf. It is up to the reciprocate of the COP9 to decide whether to work with HMRC by completing the CDF or if they would instead rather issue a rejection letter. During all COP9 investigations the normal payment of tax is continued and it is advised that any arrears that are present with a person’s tax are brought up to date as not to incur penalties on the interest that is due. In all cases, we recommend consulting our specialist tax accountant to assist with your tax investigation.
It’s impossible to praise Tax Accountants too highly! They aren’t sales driven and deliver a professional quality service. They offer a tailored and bespoke service that matches individual needs. 100% would recommend them.
Tax Accountants called me shortly after I had set up a company just as I was looking for an account. They asked a few questions and my intentions and they explained about tax planning saving me the time of blindly fishing around in the dark.
Fantastic service, my highly specific needs were listened to and understood, and I was put in contact with a relevant specialist. Couldn’t have asked for any better. I would recommend to anyone looking for fast and reliable service.
