Have You Ever Had An Hmrc Investigation?



Active Member
While there is no doubt that HMRC is spending more and more money on individual company and self-employed investigations, has anyone on the site ever been the subject of an HMRC investigation? If so, are they really as bad as some people suggest?

Somebody told me you can expect an HMRC investigation every five or six years. Is this really the case?

I have been offered HMRC investigation insurance against the cost of work by my accountant to provide the information for an investigation. So far I have not taken this up, does anybody have any advice in this area?


No but I also keep getting offers for insurance to cover HMRC investigation costs which I believe can be huge! Is it worth taking out this kind of insurance?
