Why we recommend you renew:
Each year HMRC undertake an enormous number of tax enquiries into individuals and businesses to check they have paid the right amount of tax.
Since 2010, HMRC have strengthened their approach to enquiry work. Consequently, they secured a record £30.3 billion of additional tax revenue in 2017/18 alone.
HMRC don't just target small businesses.
£3.5bn was generated during the last financial year from HMRC pursuing the 45m people in the tax system who have an income below £150,000 and assets below £1m in the UK.
£900m was secured from the UK's 8,500 wealthiest individuals alone.
These results have been achieved by targeting individuals, traders and businesses by using sophisticated software and data to enable enquiries to be targeted more efficiently and on a greater scale.
HMRC can open an investigation on a random or selective basis, to see if the taxpayer has paid the right amount of tax.
Tax enquiries can last for months, even years and the cost of defending you against HMRC's detailed questions can amount to thousands of pounds, even if no extra tax is payable.
