Case Study: EBT Settlement
HMRC is issuing Accelerated Payment Notices to companies and individuals who have undertaken tax planning such as those that feature Employee Benefit Trusts. Though the planning arrangement may still be subject to future litigation and has a good chance of being successfully defended through the courts, some businesses may decide they wish to settle with HMRC.Read case study
Our team can manage all communication with HMRC on your behalf and ensure legal processes are strictly followed. We are flexible in how we can support you when dealing with HMRC. We do not prepare accounts or tax returns so your existing agents can retain this role if you so wish. We will however take on the enquiry to resolution. If you would prefer we can advise on the conduct of the enquiry in the background or be engaged to handle a specific element such as a meeting, penalty demand or a Tribunal hearing.
