Revenue Audits & Investigation

At DBASS, we have the expertise and experience to help businesses before, during and after a Revenue Audit or investigation.

Our aim is simple – to minimise the risk of fines, penalties and prosecution, achieve cost savings, and provide business owners and company directors with peace of mind that their business is fully compliant.

It is the dread of many business owners – being audited by Revenue.

Unfortunately, Revenue Audits have become a regular feature of our tax system. Whilst the actual number of Revenue Audits has decreased in recent years, Revenue’s efforts are now focussed on conducting audits and investigations where there is the greatest chance of errors. These can either be comprehensive audits, single tax head audits or straight forward verification checks.

Testimonials

“We have been with DBASS for over 30 years. As our business grew so did the need for timely financial information, tax and business advice to help us make those important business decisions. Now when we meet each month we have reliable and accurate management accounts from DBASS presented in a way that makes complete sense to us. They take the time to know what is happening in our business and the transport sector generally. The support we get is very important to us in terms of the above and for our financial controller and the wider management team who can call on the partners in DBASS at any time. ” Raymond MacMahon, S Mac Mahon Storage & Distribution
“DBASS have worked with Frank Pratt and Sons for last 8 years, providing business support, advisory and accounting services. The level of service and professionalism has always been second to none and we would consider DBASS like an integral extension of our own team. We have always enjoyed working with them, and look forward to continuing this close relationship with them for many more years to come. ” Suzi Pratt, Frank Pratt & Sons
“A key advantage of being a DBASS client is that you can access their network of contacts within the financial services sector. This has enabled us to access a wider range of financing options for our business. Their advice is hugely practical. One example of this was dealing with a tax planning issue in a commercial and correct manner. Finally, you genuinely do have access to the senior management team whenever you need it. It is a ‘best of both worlds’ arrangement where you have the expertise of a large firm but the personal touch of a smaller firm. I highly recommend this firm.” Ray Cole, Virginia International Transport
