ALL MARDEN & CO CLIENTS COVERED BY HMRC INVESTIGATION INSURANCE.
Figures quoted in a recent Daily Telegraph article (published 16 May 2014) suggest that HMRC opened enquiries into the affairs of 237,215 people last year as compared to 119,000 in 2011/12. According to the newspaper the number of enquiries into self-employed individuals quadrupled in that time, with the suggestion being that middle class individuals (doctors, lawyers and teachers for example) are being targeted as ‘soft targets’ who are likely to pay up (in respect of rental income or capital gains for example).
