Letters from HMRC

Our experts talk you through the different letters you might receive from HMRC and what to do about them

It’s not usually a welcome sight, is it? That brown envelope coming through the letterbox? Letters from HMRC never bring good news, do they? It’s not always as bad as you fear. We at DSR Tax Claims know how scary it can be to navigate the stormy waters of taxation and that is why we are here to help. Our handy guide should tell you everything you need to know about letters you might get from HMRC but our friendly team are always here to help on 0330 122 9972 if you are still unsure.

Why might you have received a letter from HMRC?

If you are wondering whether you should open it or hide it under the mattress, here are some of the common reasons you might be getting a letter from HMRC:

  • If there seems to be a mismatch in income records, between what HMRC believe you have earned and what you have stated on your tax return. Now it might be a simple error, maybe you have just got your numbers the wrong way around, and should be easily sorted out. But be warned, deliberately trying to pull the wool over HMRC’s eyes doesn’t usually end well! It can lead to you being hit with a penalty so it is a good idea to sort this out as soon as possible.

  • Sometimes HMRC just want to check out an expenses claim. They do random spot checks from time to time, just to make sure people stay the right side of their regulations. This is nothing to worry about – if you are a DSR Tax Claims client, we deal with all of this on your behalf.

  • If you have claimed for travel expenses, HMRC sometimes like to double-check your figures to make sure you’re not overclaiming. As long as you can back up your claim, there is nothing to worry about and again DSR Tax Claims will deal with this on your behalf.

  • Maybe you have forgotten to mention a benefit that you receive, such as child benefit. Because it can be tricky to know what to include and what to leave out, it is always a good idea to use a professional tax preparation service like the one that DSR Tax Claims provide. That way you know that you won’t be missing those small but vital details.

It can be scary to open a letter from HMRC but if you are a client of DSR Tax Claims then you will know that we never claim a single penny that you are not entitled to so there is no need to worry. We are rightly proud of our good reputation with HMRC and won’t jeopardise that. Call our team of experts on 0330 122 9972 and let us get things straight for you.

What you should do if you get an enquiry from HMRC?

To process your tax refund claim, DSR Tax Claims will have asked you for plenty of documentation, such as your employment contracts, pay slips, expenses receipts, vehicle documents and so on, and that is the kind of information that HMRC will want to see to support your claim. As a client of DSR Tax Claims, we will deal with the enquiry on your behalf and will pass on any relevant information that HMRC request. We may occasionally have to come back to you for more information but our friendly team will let you know exactly what you need to do.

Because we only claim your maximum rebate, but never a single penny more than you are entitled to claim, all of our refunds are guaranteed 100% HMRC-safe as long as you have provided us with correct and complete information. This means that we close the enquiry on your behalf and in the rare instance that a refund needs to be repaid to HMRC, we repay it, not you. That is why we are the tax experts you can trust, so call DSR Tax Claims on 0330 122 9972 and let us get you your maximum refund.
