Tax enquiry fee protection

Share this article

Don’t miss out on protection from the cost of an HMRC investigation.

If HMRC open an investigation into your tax return or affairs it could be triggered for several reasons; a tip off, paying the incorrect amount of tax, late returns or simply working within a targeted sector to name a few.

The assumption when you’re selected for a tax investigation is that you have done something wrong. This is rarely the case. Random enquiries into tax affairs can and do happen. Whether you’re an individual taxpayer or business owner, an investigation is possible and nobody is exempt.

What happens during an investigation if you get an enquiry?

If HMRC decide to investigate you must comply with their requests. They will check your accounts, request a plethora of documentation, ask lots of questions and may even want to visit you in person.

No additional tax may be due, but you will still be left with enquiry fees which could cost thousands. Investigations are costly, stressful, and an unwelcome distraction from day-to-day life; whether HMRC initiate a Full Enquiry of your tax history or an Aspect Enquiry into a specific area of your return, you will be liable for the professional costs to bring about a prompt resolution.

Our normal annual fees do not cover the additional professional fees of handling tax enquiries and compliance checks.
