HMRC enquiries into tax

HMRC enquiries into tax

Do not assume that if a refund has been issued to you that that means the Revenue have agreed your claim. At that stage no human will have been involved. They have 12 months from the submission date to enquire into your return under section 9A, longer where they make a ‘discovery’ or where fraud is involved.

They have an explicit right to enquire into the completeness and accuracy of the information provided – and their enquiries could cover anything from straightforward requests for information on individual items through to full reviews of books and records.

No justification

Tax investigationHMRC do not have to justify why they are enquiring. It could just be on a random selection basis or it could be selected by reference to either information in the tax return itself or other information in their possession.

"I was delighted to have been invited to join GP locum chambers. I enjoy great peer support from my colleagues via our monthly meetings, which has been helpful to me discussing some specific things that arise with GP locum working.

I have found LocumDeck really straightforward to use and immensely helpful; in particular invoicing and the pension forms A and B has cut down my admin time dramatically, which I’m pleased about. The support from NASGP's membership support manager, is excellent, friendly and knowledgeable.

NASGP membership brings with it a host of benefits, including a range of excellent materials to draw on for support and learning. I would recommend NASGP chambers to anyone working or thinking of working as a GP locum."
