When VAT investigations have been initiated, VAT officers from HMRC are allowed to visit your business premises to carry out record inspections to ensure that the appropriate VAT is being claimed or paid by your company. Normally, HMRC issues a visit request with a period of seven days that you are expected to arrange a suitable appointment time with them. They will usually outline the information they want to see and the length of time it will take. However, as there circumstances where HMRC do not need to telephone or arrange an appointment in advance before visiting your premises, it is crucial you keep your records updated and ensure you are always paying the sufficient amount.
