Why the client needed our help

We were instructed by an estate agency based in the South East and London, in respect of PAYE and NIC security sought from the company by HMRC for a considerable sum of money, such amount likely causing the business financial problems due to the amount payable (in addition to ongoing tax obligations).

How we helped

We advised the business and its owners in accordance with the regulations affecting property agencies, and engaged HMRC in discussions.

The outcome

After extensive written negotiations, the notice of requirements for the security was withdrawn by HMRC. Our client was delighted with the result.

FWJ did precisely what it set out to do. I am extremely grateful for its assistance.
