Partnership Tax Return Investigations

Partnership Tax Return Investigations

If HMRC decide to open a tax investigation into your Partnership Tax Return, they will send you a letter informing you of their decision to open a tax investigation quoting Section 12A TMA 1970.

Is this a random enquiry?

The letter will be headed 'Check of Self Assessment Return' and can come across as being almost friendly, appearing to be just a quick enquiry about some misunderstood aspect on the form. You may be invited in for an interview to clear up the problem.

Do not be fooled. You have been selected for a tax investigation because HMRC suspect serious irregularities or under payment. The tax man means business. The letter starts – “Every year we check a number of returns to make sure they are correct and that our customers are paying the right amount of tax.” It feels that you have been selected at random.

A check of self assessment tax return is no longer a random affair. A tiny percentage of checks each year are now random. If HMRC are writing to you, they know, as you probably know, that your return was not quite what it should have been.

Warning - The investigation has already started

Usually, by the time you have received a Section 12A TMA 1970 notice, HMRC have already conducted an initial investigation into your affairs and have already decided that there is a substantial tax liability. Tax investigations into Partnership Tax Returns are dealt with by senior HMRC tax inspectors, hardened through years of experience, and the will ask some very tough, awkward and searching questions. It is easy for the investigation to spin out of control, involving all the partners in the company, and in some cases, extending into your personal affairs.

“We attempted to settle with HMRC ourselves, but they seemed to be using this cooperation to identify more and more tax irregularities. Eventually, we were in the middle or an out of control investigation which was very stressful and damaging to our business and personal lives. We called in your tax expert and immediately everything changed and we breathed a big sigh of relief. Eventually, a very agreeable settlement was reached with HMRC which would never have happened but for your excellent guidance.”
