A Reasonable Excuse

On a number of occasions potential clients have approached us saying:

If HMRC is chasing you for tax returns or money, there are three things you should do.

• The first thing is not panic and do anything hasty.

• The second thing is to not ignore it.

• The third thing you should do is contact us and we can come up with strategies to help get you up to date with your tax filing obligations and make sure you are paying the right amount of tax (and penalties if applicable).

The reality is that HMRC sees taxpayers as customers and will treat you with the understanding and respect that would be expected in such a relationship. We can work with you and HMRC to fairly resolve any issues you might have.

For various reasons, we often find that the tax being requested by HMRC is too high and the late filing penalties can be reversed as long as there is ‘a reasonable excuse’. Due to our experience and expertise, we have a very high success rate in overturning penalties and interest charged by HMRC.

If you are unsure in any way if the money being requested from you by HMRC is correct, then please contact us for free and we can quickly determine whether you have a case or not.
