Helping navigate the worry of a tax investigation

NR Barton’s tax investigation team has been set up to deal with any HMRC enquiry or investigation into your business or private affairs. 

We understand the stress and the worry that investigations can cause and we are here to help across the full scale of investigations: 

  • Full business investigation
  • PAYE inspections
  • VAT inspections
  • Technical enquiries
  • Civil investigation of fraud
  • Undisclosed income 

At NR Barton we have the experience and expertise to both make sure that HMRC do not assess tax that is not due and to minimise settlements where tax has been underpaid. 

Our team of tax investigation specialists will deal with tax enquiries effectively and efficiently. With an eye for detail and significant experience of HMRC tactics we aim to close cases as soon as is practical, with the best solution achieved for you.

As a travel agent I am a member of ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) who operate strict financial auditing and reporting and this requires some specialist knowledge from accountants, which NR Barton are able to provide. Equally, as an agent appointed by IATA (The International Air Transport Association) I must meet strict financial criteria and reporting which again requires specialist knowledge and over the many years, NR Barton have adapted to the requirements of these organisations allowing me to get on with my business.
