Tax dispute resolution

PwC can help you to prevent, manage and resolve tax disputes with HMRC.

Prevention, Management and Resolution of Disputes

The changing tax environment and the need for Tax Authorities to ensure that they are collecting the right amount of tax has changed the way in which both taxpayers and Tax Authorities manage their relationships with each other.

Our approach to preventing, managing and resolving tax disputes anticipates and mirrors that of HMRC. Effective tax dispute resolution will often be as much to do with preventing a dispute as it is with managing and resolving disputes when they occur.

We have a diverse team of dispute resolution specialists covering all taxes and business areas. Our team are able to support clients with every aspect of their interaction with HMRC from strategy through to resolution, including litigation where required. Many of our team have worked for the tax authorities so we have extensive knowledge of their approach to tax risk management, as well as a deep understanding of tax administration - including information powers, the penalty regime and rules for deliberate or serial tax defaulters.

We are part of a Global Network of Dispute specialists and can provide multi-territory support where this is required.

We’ll keep you updated with changes in law or HMRC’s approach and how they may affect you. If you need help negotiating a settlement, dealing with HMRC or putting together a fact-based case, we’ve got the right people and experience.

And should you need to litigate, our tax litigation specialists can also help you.
