Tax investigations

02 May 2017

Tax officials have raided the grounds of football clubs Newcastle United and West Ham United. It is understood that the HMRC investigations concern transfers between English and French clubs, image right payments and payments to football agents.

You may not be the owner of a premier league football club, but an HMRC investigation can still be time consuming and stressful. An investigation can start through the legitimate disclosure of a transaction that is simply outside of the norm for your tax affairs. There has to be no suggestion of any wrongdoing.

Our tax experts at Beavis Morgan are experienced in all types of Revenue enquiry. We can also provide professional fee protection insurance which may cover the costs in whole or in part. If you’re concerned or indeed there is already an enquiry taking place, please contact Paul Attridge, Alan Ford or your usual Beavis Morgan partner.
