Why am I chosen for a Tax Investigation

There are many reasons why you may be chosen for a tax investigation. One of the most common reasons is if HMRC suspects that you have not declared your income or gains correctly on your tax return. Other reasons may include:

Your tax returns show inconsistencies or discrepancies

Your business has been flagged for underreporting income or overclaiming expenses

You have failed to pay the correct amount of tax

You have been anonymously reported to HMRC

Your lifestyle or spending habits are not in line with your reported income

What is HMRC Tax Investigation?

HMRC tax investigation is a process carried out by the HM Revenue and Customs to check whether taxpayers have paid the correct amount of tax or not. These investigations are not random, but rather, they are initiated when HMRC suspects that a taxpayer has not paid the right amount of tax, or when there is a clear indication of tax evasion or avoidance.

What Information Does HMRC Hold for You or Your Business Before Starting an Investigation?

Before starting a tax investigation, HMRC will gather information about you or your business from various sources. This may include:

– Your tax returns
– Information from third parties, such as banks, employers, or customers
– Data obtained from HMRC’s Connect system, which uses data-matching techniques to identify potential tax evasion or avoidance
