HMRC can enforce tax debts against individuals and companies in a number of ways and it is imperative that you seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity to protect your position.
If you have received a statutory demand, you must act quickly (usually within 18 days) if you hope to avoid HMRC bankrupting you as an individual or applying for a winding up petition if you are a company. With debt enforcement by HMRC it is inevitable that unless action is taken the demand will eventually lead to the presentation of a winding up against a company or bankruptcy petition against an individual.
Our tax team work closely with our insolvency team to manage the HMRC enforcement process for you. Many specialist tax firms cannot offer dual expertise in both practice areas, but our firm can provide a bespoke solution to your individual circumstances be it with tax advice or insolvency solutions.
