When trouble arises with HMRC, it is essential to know what rights clients have in standing up to any real or perceived unfairness. This book addresses in a practical manner the question of the safeguards that are available in particular circumstances.

The book covers the whole spectrum of protections that are available: statutory, judicial, administrative, and so on. It sets these against the background of the rule of law.
