HMRC enquiries and investigations are not to be taken lightly. They are an important part of your role as a finance professional, and mistakes can cost both you, your company or your clients, more than just money.

This course looks at how HMRC handle routine enquiries into self-assessment returns, through to full blown investigations into a taxpayer's affairs.
