We perform pre audit reviews, resolve technical tax issues , prepare voluntary disclosures and where necessary reach negotiated settlements with Revenue. This reduces stress and allows you to continue to run your business. Where it is merited we will assist in an appeal to the Revenue Commissioners in respect of an assessment to tax. This is a complex and detailed process that requires expert knowledge and we will guide you through this process right up to sitting in front of the Appeals Commissioner and putting your case to the Appeals Commissioners.
