Each investigation has its roots in information

Each investigation has its roots in information, returns and accounts submitted to the tax office. Targets have been set and the Inspector will be looking for the softest, most lucrative available, and make no mistake you are a target. Individual inspectors are judged by results, not by any elegantly conducted near misses, so pressure to succeed is strong, nothing speaks louder than results, and an inspector who fails to produce the goods will not advance. Their investigation has no doubt been moving along in the background for some time before you were sent the opening letter. They will also wish to ensure that you're sufficiently cash or asset rich to fund a settlement. They will be thinking in terms of monetary payment form these investigations. If you have no money there will be complications for HMRC in agreeing acceptable means of a settlement, this also stiffens the resolve of the taxpayer to refute the claims made by the Inspector.

Your Inspector will be looking for an early breakthrough;

HMRC gather their information from far and wide, they have amazing sources of information. Firstly they have your tax return of course and the details supplied by your business accounts, but they would not get very far on just these items. They have the electoral register so they know who lives where and who pays the rates. They also have information supplied to them regularly by banks, building societies, auctioneers and other institutions about various transactions. They also receive tip-offs, every taxpayer has a well-wisher at some time, partners and ex-spouses who have privileged information and may decide to be a little malicious. Great weight might not be attributed to such information at first, but no doubt it will raise your profile and can lead to other areas of inquiry, which HMRC can find profitable. Our analysts will scrutinize the raw data, highlight crucial information and expose errors which may have been interrupted incorrectly. They will advise our negotiators, experts on Tax Investigation strategies to ensure that a coherent and effective presentation of your case is being pursued.
