HMRC is making a significant effort to promote the use of alternative dispute resolution in tax disputes (ADR). If your case qualifies for ADR, Pearl Lemon Legal can advise you on this and assist you in making the procedure as easy as possible.
ADR is intended to assist people and businesses with disputes when they are unable to progress in their interactions with HMRC Alternative Dispute. ADR may be the best option for you if there is a disagreement regarding your business or personal tax matters that is far from cut and dried.
You, your accountant or tax advisor, or the HMRC Alternative Dispute employee handling your case can ask HMRC to take ADR into account. ADR could speed up the review process if HMRC is conducting a compliance check. Anyone or any organization already under criminal investigation is not eligible for ADR, but most other taxpayers are, at least in theory.
