What is an HMRC enquiry?

It sounds scary but often it is just HMRC just checking out a few details on your tax return or refund claim. And sometimes they just do the odd random check to make sure that everyone is following the rules and regulations they set down. So, as long as you are, there’s no need to worry.

What kind of enquiries do HMRC open?

There are a number of different types of enquiry that HMRC might raise. If you are a client of DSR Tax Claims then you have no need to worry as we will deal with HMRC on your behalf, including any of these enquiries:

  • Income discrepancy enquiry – if HMRC’s records of your income don’t match your own, HMRC may open an enquiry into this. Very often, it is just a case of fixing an easily-made mistake and is simple to sort out. It gets trickier (and more serious for you) if HMRC believe that you aren’t being honest in your income declaration. If, for example, you have failed to declare income from another source – maybe property rental income or other ways you make money on top of your regular job, this is not quite so easy to sort out. This is why our experts stress the importance of making sure the information that you give us is complete and correct. DSR Tax Claims will deal with your HMRC enquiry on your behalf and if you are covered by our guarantee then we will close the enquiry for you.

  • Travel expense enquiry – because they can make up such a large part of tax rebates, sometimes HMRC will just want to check that our calculations are correct and that we have supporting evidence for the claim. We deal with these enquiries as a matter of course and because our experts won’t claim a penny that you’re not entitled to, you don’t have to worry.

  • Work expense enquiry – sometimes HMRC might need a bit more information about an expense claim and so they will raise an enquiry to look into it. Occasionally we might need to ask you for more paperwork to support your claim, but because we don’t try to pull the wool over HMRC’s eyes by claiming for fraudulent expenses, you don’t need to worry. We will deal with these enquiries on your behalf.

These are the main types of HMRC enquiry that we deal with on behalf of our clients. Occasionally there might be an enquiry into child benefit claims, if HMRC think you have claimed it and aren’t entitled to it, but our team can help to sort that out for you.

As you can see, it really benefits you to be a DSR Tax Claims client. Not only do we get you your maximum rebate fast, but we also deal with HMRC on your behalf so you don’t have to. And as long as the information you have given us is accurate and complete, you can rest assured that your rebate is covered by our guarantee. So, call our friendly expert team on 0330 122 9972.
