Tax Investigation Service

HM Revenue & Customs has increased powers to enquire into any aspect of the tax affairs of any individual or business without requiring reason. It is therefore not just businesses with a high turnover or large profits that are investigated, enquiries can be selected completely at random.

Even though your tax affairs may be completely in order, this does not remove the risk of enquiry. The professional fees in defending you or your business against these enquiries can be substantial.

We are pleased to advise that we do operate our ‘Tax Investigation Service’. In the event of any tax investigation, aspect enquiry or dispute with H M Revenue & Customs, we are able to make a claim against our insurance policy held with CCH, to cover our fees in defending you. The cost of this fee protection is a nominal annual fee.

Whilst any tax, interest and penalties arising from any enquiry remain as your liability, this service will still represent a cost effective measure to help manage professional fees in the event of any tax enquiry or dispute.

As a subscriber to our ‘Tax Investigation Service’ you will also have access to an independent 24 hour legal help line which you can call free of charge, to obtain advice of the law as it affects your business.

If you are interested in taking up this service or require further information before deciding then please do not hesitate to contact us.
