Revenue have substantially increased their audits and aspect queries over the last number of years. Now when a client receives a Revenue letter they should realise that Revenue are asking a question for a reason. Very little audits or queries from Revenue are picked at random anymore.

This success is down to being knowledgeable on the subject matter, being prepared and dealing with Revenue officals in a professional manner.
