Tax Tribunals & Disputes

Tax investigations, tribunals and disputes are on the rise, as HMRC seeks to take a firm approach to enforcing its tax take. Technical in nature and needing a detailed analysis, tax disputes are a core area of expertise for the Morgan Rose team and we are proud of our strong track record of success for our clients.

Tax litigation advice

99% of tax claims are brought by HMRC, with a handful through the National Crime Agency. At Morgan Rose we cover all aspects of tax tribunal work and have a growing specialism in VAT disputes, where we have won cases on points of European Law. In addition to regular tax fraud cases, we have niche expertise in the tax treatment of vouchers, and recently secured a write-off by HMRC of £0.75 million in a dispute over the correct tax treatment of exhibitions.

Civil and criminal expertise

We regularly advise on tax disputes where there is a cross-over between civil and criminal proceedings, It is not unusual in these cases for the criminal confiscation proceedings to fail, at which point civil proceedings will be brought under the Proceeds of Crime Act. Our expertise across both civil and criminal defence law enables Morgan Rose to provide a seamless and effective defence for our clients.

Tax tribunals - VAT specialists

When a business faces a VAT investigation from HMRC, the directors need fast advice as to whether or not an appeal may be possible, as there may be millions of pounds at stake. The Morgan Rose team has specialists in VAT disputes and a strong track record at the First-tier Tax Tribunal and in negotiations with HMRC.

What to do if you are facing a tax investigation by HMRC

If your tax affairs are investigated by HMRC, the best thing you can do is to seek early advice, from specialist tax solicitors such as our team here at Morgan Rose. Expert tax lawyers will be able to assess your case, help you to build the best defence and – most importantly – provide supportive advice to help mitigate the situation.
