Being investigated by tax and financial authorities can be distressing and disruptive to your personal and professional life. Our experienced team can help to defend you from any allegations of financial irregularity and reduce the impact on your life as much as possible.

We have helped many clients who faced financial tax investigation or prosecution by HMRC. This means that we can provide you with support and guidance that will help you navigate your way through your legal situation with greater confidence and ease.

Expert Advice and Legal Assistance for You

We provide clear, comprehensive and practical advice to help you protect your best interests and your legal rights. Our legal experts are highly experienced at:

  • Negotiating settlement agreements
  • Providing legal representation before tax tribunals
  • Dealing with Special Investigations enquiries
  • Representing clients in cases that involve ‘carousel’ or ‘MTIC’ VAT fraud or direct tax evasion

Our wide ranging experience of tax investigations means that we can help you fully understand your rights and we will gather the evidence and witnesses needed to make a strong defence for you. We will do whatever we can to stop the case from reaching Court or proceeding to trial.

We usually act on a privately paying basis, with many of our clients able to fund our work through an insurance policy. In certain cases where clients cannot afford to pay legal fees, it may be possible to access legal aid. Contact us and we will talk you through all your options for funding your case.

How We Work

We will work closely with you, keeping you informed of each new development as it occurs. We understand that the fine details of tax law are complex and frequently subject to change, but our legal experts will work hard to ensure that everything is clearly explained. At all times we will work tirelessly to protect you and we will always put your best interests first.

Fast friendly and efficient service from Sheffield team all dealt with electronically due to distance with buying on south coast... The price quoted was fair, fixed and compared favourably against other large firms. Would definitely use again and recommend to anyone.
