HMRC are increasing their investigation activities. Insurers have seen a 52% increase in claims compared to the same time last year. These investigations and enquiries can be disruptive, intrusive, time consuming and can easily cost thousands of pounds to defend. New legislation has widened HMRC’s already significant powers to allow less formal enquiries and visits to your premises. This is why we strongly recommend that our clients consider taking out our Tax Enquiry Fee Protection Insurance.
By joining or renewing, you will have peace of mind that we can defend your position and ensure HMRC are not being unreasonable should your affairs come under scrutiny.
Please remember, the cost of tax enquiries is not included in our normal fees and enquiry costs can be incurred irrespective of whether any additional tax liabilities are established during the investigation.
