Irrespective of the level of controls and checks in place, fraud and error can occur. We work with clients to fully understand the nature and scale of these issues by undertaking forensic internal investigations under legal professional privilege. Where it is deemed appropriate to make a voluntary disclosure, we will advise on the presentation of the factual material identified during the investigation and its impact on the tax technical analysis. We are increasingly finding that the tax authorities expect a far greater level of enquiry to be undertaken by taxpayers before they will accept the technical analysis advanced in a disclosure. Coupled with an enforcement landscape of increased penalties, criminal prosecution and loss of approvals and licences, the importance of the investigation phase of a tax dispute cannot be understated. Our international reach allows us to follow lines of enquiry that arise along globalised supply chains or deal with problems which occur in multiple locations globally. Our investigation capabilities and experience are therefore at the heart of our ability to minimise the disruption caused by tax fraud and errors.
We regularly undertake the following tax investigation work:
