Local Compliance Investigations


Compliance checks are not viewed as a criminal inquiry but instead an investigation into any potential wrongdoing or attempt to hide false information declared as true. In the case of individuals, the checks are most often used to establish whether a person has underpaid their taxes; these can be part of a simple routine checking procedure. Individual local compliance investigations occur when HMRC is alerted to a possible problem. Due to the powerful nature of the HMRC’s database, information is gathered on most aspects of a person’s financial dealings. The database can be triggered in instances regarding your income reports, declaration of assets, amount of bank interest received, your capital gains or other matters relating to your tax reports. A local compliance investigation can also be undertaken if it is believed that your income source is something other than what was declared on your returns.

Normal accounting is focused on reporting profit or loss of the business and will be governed by GAAP. But Tax accounting is majorly focused on the impact of transactions on tax liability.

Every business including sole traders, partnerships, limited companies and large business will plan for their taxes and make amendments to financial statements and include any past or future tax liabilities through tax accounting entries.

Tax accounting enables and empowers business to comply with tax law and prepare for any future tax liability. Tax Accounting is part of accounting which will be governed by the laws of taxes in that jurisdiction.

Apart from tax compliance, tax accounting will help you generate cash flow in real terms. Any future tax liability will be added to cash flow of business in order to save money for future tax payments.

HMRC have published guidance to record income and expenditure on cash basis or accrual basis. They will accept any tax planning which is part of final accounts and is not tax avoidance.

There is not much difference in the costs. Most of tax accountants will charge for advice and tax planning. Whereas accounting will be the same for every business. The difference is to include tax planning in accounts.
