It is a known fact that HMRC are basically the "police" of the tax world, and they are regularly carrying out checks on businesses. These checks are to ensure the accuracy of tax returns are correct. The "tax police" will look at factors such as PAYE contributions, VAT records and assets of the business, there's no stopping them really.
