Tax Risk & Dispute Resolution

Integrated and effective dispute resolution for high net worth individuals and their businesses.

Understanding your needs

Media interest in the tax affairs of large businesses and wealthy individuals remains undiminished.

The Government and HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) are under greater pressure to close the ‘tax gap’ by tackling evasion, tax avoidance and other non-compliance.

As a result, HMRC has increased the number of tax enquiries and the additional tax, interest and penalties collected from these.

Tax investigations of businesses and individuals and the associated dispute resolution can be stressful, disruptive and expensive, and calls for effective tax dispute resolution.
