Liz is a fully trained former Inspector of Taxes, the experience she can offer clients extends far beyond an in-depth knowledge of tax legislation and case law. In many cases the key to a successful resolution is knowing how to present facts and scenarios to HMRC in a form that will enable an acceptable settlement to be made, rather than complicated tax legislation.
HMRC has wide ranging powers to investigate personal and business affairs at will. In some circumstances they are entitled to enter premises without notice to seek documents relevant to your tax affairs and they have penalty regimes established to maximise the amount of money that they can extract from clients if they decide that duties have been deliberately underpaid.
Liz has established a reputation for being a skilful, hard but fair negotiator with HMRC. She understands the concerns and needs of people who are subject to investigation and acts swiftly to takeaway these worries immediately, especially in the more serious cases being undertaken by members of HMRC's Specialist Investigation offices.
I am able to negotiate cost effective pragmatic settlements, whilst enabling clients to continue their business throughout the process of the enquiry.
HMRC are increasingly supporting the appointment of insolvency practitioners to recover tax they believe to be unpaid by Companies and individuals. Insolvency practitioners will seek to recover funds from former directors, shareholders and other individuals of influence in the company.
HMRC also issue personal liability notices which transfer the obligation for penalties and some duties from the Company to the director.
Liz has negotiated settlements of such actions by the examination of the duties being pursued – as often there are alternative ways of establishing the tax liability – and the considered presentation of proposals thus ensuring the clients’ assets are protected.
For those unfortunate enough to have the experience of being involved in litigation and court proceedings Liz can provide support and specialised expertise both in case preparation and in the court hearing itself. She has extensive experience of cases of alleged fraud - particularly in defending clients against such claims by HMRC. As in other areas, there are often alternative ways of calculating tax liabilities which would prove beneficial to the client.Add to My Team
