High Net Worth Unit
HMRC deals with the tax affairs of the UK’s 2,500 wealthiest taxpayers in its specialist High Net Worth Unit (HNWU): staffed by highly experienced and dedicated tax inspectors, accountants, lawyers and other specialists.
Established in 2009, 400 tax officers oversee the tax affairs of the UK's richest High Net Worth Individuals (HINWi’s). HINWi’s are selected by HMRC, partly using publically available data to identify individuals with wealth in excess of £10,000,000. The High Net Worth Units have offices in: Bradford, Cardiff, East Kilbride, Nottingham, and Washington.
Taxpayers whose affairs are dealt with by the HNWU will have received so-called "welcome letters" informing them that their tax affairs will be dealt with there.
The high staffing ratios and the complexity of most HINWi’s financial affairs mean that a substantial number will receive an HMRC Enquiry most years.
How can Lynam Tax Enquiry Experts help me?
Many accountants and tax advisers prefer to outsource the tax enquiry work to specialists such as us. They can concentrate on their bread and butter (planning and annual compliance), passing the responsibility for the out-of-cycle, resource-intensive enquiry work to us. The fact that we only do tax enquiry and dispute work (full-time, 100% of our professional lives) gives us the breadth of experience and the depth of concentrated practice (over 100,000 hours) that makes us true specialists. We have ample experience of dealing with HINWi’s and their issues - and we can be relied upon for integrity and absolute discretion.
If you or your clients are facing a Tax Enquiry from the HNWU please call today for an initial free, wholly confidential, no obligation, discussion. Phone:
