how many years can the inland revenue go back to look into your financial affairs
There is no limit.

If the tax office is looking into one year and they find discrepancies in that year's figures they may assume that there may be similar discrepancies in earlier years, in which case they could go back six years.

If they consider there may have been deliberate tax evasion then they can go back as far as they like.
