Our Services for Contractors

Experienced in representing contractors in a wide range of areas

One of the main services our contractor lawyers offer is advice regarding tax investigations. HMRC is a powerful investigating body and the nature of contracting means it’s relatively easy to find yourself facing an investigation. Getting all the right information in a self-assessment form can be difficult and random checks can also be carried out, even if you haven’t done anything wrong. In these situations, expert legal advice can make all the difference.

Other services that we offer contractors include regulatory cases that may relate to your business. Contractors involved in these regulatory investigations will undoubtedly want a swift resolution with the best outcome possible. Richard Nelson LLP’s solicitors work with you to ensure that this is the case.
