HMRC tax enquiries

printer Mail

In the year to 31 March 2020, HMRC conducted 337,000 enquiries, with the highest number taking place in quarter one of 2020, according to tax investigation insurance specialists Professional Fee Protection (PfP). Kevin Igoe, Managing Director at PfP, noted that ‘with so many tax enquiries being completed, we can assume HMRC has plenty that it will turn into full blown investigations now that lockdown is ending’.

During coronavirus, however, HMRC has allocated much of its compliance resources to administering the support schemes, which may afford taxpayers ‘some breathing space to review their affairs and correct any mistakes’.
