I Don’t Agree With HMRC, Can I Challenge Their Decision?
There are numerous methods of challenging a decision made by HMRC. Some are easy to implement (such as requesting an HMRC independent review) and others require more preparation (such as taking to the matter to the tax tribunal). Remember that HMRC’s decision alone does not need to be the end of the matter, there are many avenues to be explored.

HMRC Independent Review
Usually, the first stage in appealing any HMRC decision in the HMRC Independent Review. This is essentially requesting that HMRC takes another look at your case, taking into account any information that may have previously been overlooked. Although this is always the first stage we recommend in any appeal, due to its simplicity and low cost for our clients, it’s rarely successful.
