Tax Investigation Fee Protection

With HMRC reportedly looking to raise £16.1bn of tax through compliance activity, a 33% increase on the £12.1bn collected in 2008/09, the chances of businesses and individuals being randomly selected for investigation is on the up.

Anyone who pays tax can come under scrutiny and since April 2009, HMRC have been able to inspect personal and business records relating to Corporate and Income Tax, PAYE, NI, VAT and Capital Gains Tax.

Whilst you can’t avoid the possibility of an investigation, you can mitigate the financial impact of a tax investigation by taking out our Tax Investigation Fee Protection to cover you against the cost of our professional fees as we defend you.

With protection starting from as little as £50 plus VAT for a full year’s cover, this represents a great return on investment when you consider tax investigations are:

  • Expensive – costs regularly exceed £4,000
  • Time consuming – Enquiries can drag on and can last for many months
  • Harrowing – You will be at the mercy of the revenue

Take up our Tax Investigation Fee Protection and you will have peace of mind that we will be able to deal with an investigation in the best way possible for you and your business without the fees becoming a problem to you.
