One of HMRC’s most severe measures… What is it?

Anton Lane discusses COP 9, one of the most severe measures. What is it? Edge Tax is here to offer specialist advice to clients nationwide.

With increasing pressure to close the multi-billion pound tax gap, HMRC tax investigations and enquiries are becoming increasingly common and with a rush of Tax Information Exchange Agreements being signed with “Tax Havens” it is fast becoming necessary to disclose any tax irregularities or defend yourself against HMRC.

At Edge Tax, we recognise that many individuals have undertaken planning or have prescribed a particular tax treatment of income or expenditure in the belief or under advice that planning or structures involved legitimate methods ratified by the UK tax authorities. We understand that simply because an individual is under enquiry, it does not mean that they have engaged in wrongdoing.

We pride ourselves on being experts in UK and overseas tax investigations. We provide a confidential and non-judgemental service, carefully managing the relationship between you and your accountant whilst dealing with HMRC on your behalf. Our main priority is to correct your tax position and help you achieve your original goals.

Our investigations service is led by our Managing Director, Anton Lane who contributes his own unique skill set. In addition to his extensive investigations experience, Anton’s all-embracing consultancy and tax-planning experience provides the Edge Tax team with the ability to diagnose where your planning may have gone wrong and structure technically strong arguments to create an effective strategy to tackle your disclosure.
