SAVING YOU VALUABLE TIME AND RESOURCES
A contractor tax Investigation is generally triggered for two reasons; the first is a relatively routine random selection orchestrated by HMRC as a form of spot-checking. The second is where HMRC has been alerted to potentially suspicious activity within your limited company. Since most self-employed company owners must provide their own resources, instances where the company has declared a low turnover along with a low amount of expenses, yet are yielding a high dividend, alerts HMRC to potential misrepresentation of status. If HMRC selects you for an IR35 investigation it is crucial to have an expert tax accountant review your company’s expenditure, highlighting any possible reason for investigation. We as specialist accountant can represent you in any instances where HMRC have started any compliance chek or investigation. In some cases where you are contacted by HMRC in relation to employment status, they can accept an explanation letter as to why you are classified as self-employed.
