Mediation is far less formal and costly than a tribunal. It allows parties to meet face to face and air their grievances before an independent HMRC facilitator, with a view to reaching a settlement.
According to HMRC’s figures, mediations have an 88% success rate. At Buzzacott, we’ve managed to reach an agreement in 100% of the cases we have taken to mediation due to the appointment of our own CEDR (The Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution) accredited mediator.
Even if mediation is not successful, it’ll still allow you and your adviser to narrow down the issues at dispute, allowing you to make a more informed decision as to the arguments that will be raised, and the likelihood of success, should the case proceed to tribunal.
