Accounting Services For Construction & Sub-Contractors

by specialist construction accountants

If you’re looking for a construction accountant or a sub-contractor accountant, you’re looking for an accountancy firm that has an in-depth knowledge of the specific challenges your industry presents.

Sub-contractor accounting is complex – you are running your own limited company, which is tricky enough, and then you have CIS to consider on top of that. You want a specialised CIS accountant, equipped to deal with the complex tax system you find yourself in.

The construction accounting industry is arguably even more complex, which is why you should look to work with a specialist construction accountant firm like Warr & Co.

We work with a variety of business types within this industry, so we see the whole picture. Book in a free consultation with us to find out how we can help you run a successful construction or sub-contracting business, with minimum hassle and maximum financial efficiency.

Tax Enquiry Service

What Is A Tax Enquiry?

A Tax Enquiry is an HMRC investigation into your businesses taxes. Often this is not a simple process, as the investigative team from HMRC may want paperwork and face-to-face meetings to discuss your business taxes.

Anyone can be subject to an HMRC enquiry, and you must comply by law. They can target any business they wish to and do not have to have a reason to target your business, meaning that they can open an enquiry even if you’ve done nothing wrong.

This is troubling for businesses, and especially small businesses. The cost of defending your company in a tax enquiry with HMRC is significant and can easily run into thousands of pounds – in addition, it’s not unusual for enquiries to last months or even years. So you need a good accountant on your side to defend you and ensure no errors are made on your behalf throughout the investigation.

What’s Included In The Tax Enquiry Service?

Warr & Co will deal with all HMRC correspondence on your behalf, we will prepare and defend your case, and we will negotiate the best possible outcome for you wherever necessary.

Did you know? Even if you are not at fault and have had no errors in your business taxes, the costs of defending your business in an HMRC enquiry are not refunded. Unfair, yes, but that’s exactly why this add-on service is highly recommended to all of our business clients.

For one small annual fee, your business is covered in case HMRC decides to open an enquiry for your business. Whatever the outcome, you’re safest if you have our Tax Enquiry Service on your side.

We have plenty of information, including a downloadable leaflet about tax enquiries and pricing for this service, on the link below.
