MEET THE TEAM

Tax Investigations & Tribunals

UNW’s tax team has vast experience of handling a wide range of HMRC investigations, from local compliance enquiries and employer compliance reviews, through to the most serious cases dealt with under Code of Practice 8 (avoidance) and Code of Practice 9 (fraud) by HMRC Specialist Investigations.

With two leading members of the UNW team having worked at senior levels with HMRC before moving into practice, much of the work is on a referred basis, working alongside the incumbent accountants of those under investigation to ensure the best possible settlement is negotiated with HMRC.

When an agreed negotiated settlement proves impossible, UNW’s team also has considerable experience of taking disputes to the First-Tier Tax Tribunal, occasionally appearing as advocates on behalf of appellants if appropriate.
