Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) tend to be blamed for over half of the UK’s tax gap i.e. the difference between the amount of money HMRC actually collects and the amount that it believes is due.

Given that HMRC’s number one objective is to ‘maximise revenues due’, and with the Making Tax Digital regime coming into force in early 2019 as part of this overall process, the UK’s 5 million + SMEs can expect to increasingly be the target of investigations over the coming years as HMRC looks to reduce the tax gap.

Sakura’s Tax Investigations Protection Service is designed to provide our clients with protection against the fees arising from professional representation during such an enquiry.
