HM Revenue and Customs have powers to investigate income tax and corporation tax payers at random, and the number of these investigations is expected to increase dramatically over future years.
With the increased risk of full tax enquiries and investigations it's worth considering protecting yourself from the accountancy costs of dealing with it as the amount of work involved can often be substantial.
If you are a self-assessment tax payer, VAT registered, or if you are responsible for employees' PAYE and P11D's then you could be subject to a random investigation. Even if HMRC finds nothing as a result of the investigation, you will still have unexpected professional fees to pay as a result.
We cannot prevent you from being investigated by HMRC, but we can help to ensure that you get the best possible support and advice without having to worry about the cost.
Our Practice's Insurance Scheme is operated by Professional Fee Protection (PFP) and Croner Taxwise. These Providers offer comprehensive cover for the professional fees should your tax affairs be investigated. In addition they provides a 24 hour legal helpline all at a relatively low cost. This insurance is highly recommended to all our clients due to the business support and assurance it provides.
