A brief summary , my client has gone through one investigation from the 1990 to 1996 , 6 years with an outcome in more-or-less his favour, his car was disallowed from the accounts going back to 1983 when he commenced business, we went through three Inspector's, a district inspector and ended up with an area inspector who informed us that he was on the Ken Dodd investigation, you can tell from a six-year investigation the client had a terrific resilience and had worked for the government in a clandestine environment . Herefordshire been a favourite county?.
Now it has come to pass that we are kicking off with a second investigation, would be interested to here any comments, how unusual is this situation, the client is in the same Business , fish and chips , accounts are a excellent gross profit around 56 per cent records are kept in a excellent manner with no suppression of invoices etc.
Any advice on tactics, greatly received, would you proceed on a harassment bases, or straight to the commissioners. our client isn't looking forward to another six years , hope this doesn't send him over the top, wouldn't like to be around if that happened!
