THE LOGICAL NEXT STEP AFTER DISPUTE

THE LOGICAL NEXT
STEP AFTER DISPUTE

HMRC Statutory Review is the next step once you have exhausted other options of a dispute with HMRC on a tax decision. This process was introduced in 2009 for direct tax and indirect tax decisions and is available to customers with or without a tax accountant. HMRC Statutory Review was introduced to resolve disputes without needing recourse to a tribunal and ease pressure on the tribunal service. Even if you decide on ADR as your first option, it is still recommended to ask for a Statutory Review, especially because you don’t need to wait for HMRC’s decision to ask for one. Asking for a Statutory Review means your legal rights will be protected. A Statutory Review is an internal review that must be carried out by an HMRC officer – or a team of HMRC officers – with no previous involvement in your case. Review cases are sometimes dealt with by teams at an entirely different location, often referred to as specialist offices.

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. 

Your accountant may have included some normal tax provisions. If not you may be able to make adjustments in your current financial year. If you are loosing any tax reliefs, you may need to amend accounts and resubmit to HMRC and companies house.
