HMRC offer Alternative dispute resolution ( ADR) time-efficient way to resolve your dispute with them.
Lindsay has much experience in this field often where all else has failed to reach a settlement.
If you have a dispute with HMRC that you have been unable to settle through negotiation, you may wish to consider using alternative dispute resolution (often abbreviated to ADR) rather than taking an appeal to the tax tribunal.
The main advantages of using alternative dispute resolution are that it:
- avoids costly litigation;
- is time-efficient;
- is a confidential process; and
- allows the taxpayer and adviser to retain control
If a negotiated outcome cannot be reached you still retain the option of a tribunal so nothing is lost but ADR benefits both sides in this regard.
