HMRC are very unlikely to reveal any information as to why they are enquiring into your tax affairs. They will occasionally give hints to specialist advisors and accountants and inferences can be taken from correspondence and meetings (if one is held). However,the official line is that they are not conducting and income tax investigation they are merely checking that your return is correct and most people subject to an Inland Revenue investigation will not be told the reason why that tax investigation commenced.
