The law surrounding taxation is not always black and white, and there are often instances where HMRC will take a view that is not necessarily correct.
If you feel that HMRC has taken an incorrect or unreasonable view, please contact us to see if we can assist. If any problems do arise with HMRC it is very important to address them as quickly as possible, as delay can give rise to penalties that could be avoided if action is taken straight away.
We have a huge amount of experience in this area, particularly in the area of Agricultural Property Relief and Business Property Relief for Inheritance Tax purpose.
We have been at the forefront of the long running battle with HMRC concerning when the reliefs will apply, usually in respect of Agricultural Property Relief on farmhouses, as can be seen from our involvement in the following reported cases:
Antrobus I and II – Lloyd’s TSB as Personal Representative of Rosemary Antrobus deceased v IRC  STC (SCD) 468,  WTLR 1435
& Antrobus No 2  WTLR 1535
Williams – Williams v HMRC  STC (SCD) 782,  WTLR 1421
