You may find alternative dispute resolution (ADR) useful if you are currently experiencing an enquiry by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and have been unable to bring this to an end.

Alternative dispute resolution is a system that can be used to try and provide a quick and fair way to end disputes arising from compliance checks or enquiries.

We provide more information on when you can ask for your case to be referred for alternative dispute resolution and how it works in our tax basics section.
