Reasons For a COP 14 Investigation
A COP 14 investigation may be carried out for a number of reasons. Perhaps you have made a mistake when submitting your tax return. HMRC may launch an investigation into your organisation if they notice these mistakes or if they suspect that the mistake was a little more than an accident. To launch the process of an investigation, HMRC will notify you in writing and they will advise if they are reviewing your whole company or just a specific area. With a COP 14 investigation it will be either based on a Full or Aspect investigation.
As soon as you receive a notification of investigation you must seek advice from a tax investigation specialist. Churchill Tax Investigations can provide comprehensive advice to all kinds of professionals and we work with you to achieve the most effective result possible.
