Tax investigation & Representation

Tax Tribunal

The Tax Tribunal is the process by which taxpayers can appeal against HMRC’s decisions. If you are unhappy with HMRC’s final decision in your tax investigation, then you may wish to take your case to the First-tier Tribunal.

What is the appeal process for an HMRC investigation?

The First-tier Tribunal is responsible for handling appeals against some decisions made by HMRC, with relation to certain aspects of the tax code, including:

• Income tax
• PAYE tax
• Corporation tax
• Capital Gains Tax
• NICs
• Statutory sick pay and statutory maternity pay
• IHT
• VAT
• Excise duty
• Customs duty

It is essential that you seek professional advice and representation if you plan to take HMRC’s decision to First-tier Tribunal. Tax Champion’s team of specialist tax appeal experts will guide you through the process, representing your best interests at every stage and allowing you to focus your time and energy on the important things – your business and loved ones.

What if you’re unhappy with HMRC’s decision?

In rare cases, you may decide to appeal to the Upper Tribunal if you are unsatisfied with the result of an appeal at the First-tier Tribunal. In order for an appeal to the Upper Tribunal to be accepted, you must demonstrate how the First-tier Tribunal’s decision was wrong in law. We will bring our considerable experience and expertise to the table for you and your business, working towards a fair and satisfactory conclusion whilst minimising any negative impact the enquiry may have.

Tax Champion’s expert tax advisors have a wealth of experience in representing clients throughout the enquiry and appeal process, and can help you avoid the astronomical costs of a protracted investigation and appeal with tailored tax advice and guidance.
