For Many Years, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has put extra resources into pursuing more tax. As a result, clients face an increased risk of an enquiry into their tax affairs. In addition, HMRC now has wider powers to visit premises and inspect financial records. It is expected that HMRC will use these powers frequently, that enquiries will become more complex and that the costs of responding will increase. So it is important as it has ever been for clients to obtain protection against those costs.
We have considerable expertise in defending clients under enquiry by HMRC. If you are selected for a tax enquiry, we will aim to settle it quickly and minimise the final tax liabilities. Even so, answering all of HMRC’s questions takes time and the enquiry could drag on for months. It can cost thousands of pounds to defend you, whatever the end result.
To provide peace of mind, we offer a Tax Enquiry Fee Protection Service. The service is backed by an insurable policy under which we can claim the costs of defending clients in tax enquiries. Clients who subscribe to the service will also be able to obtain helpful advice about the complex areas of Health & Safety and Employment Law.
