Now available - tax fee protection service

By popular request, we will now offer a tax fee protection service starting from 1 May 2018. Read on for details...

Tax Enquiries – everyone is at risk

Anyone who sends in a tax return or business accounts to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is at risk of a tax enquiry or inspection. In 2016/17, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) secured a record £28.9bn of additional revenue through tax enquiries into businesses and individuals. The target for this year is even higher.

Thousands of individuals and businesses are selected for such checks every year. If it happens to you, the questions will be detailed and time consuming to answer. Whether or not HMRC finds extra tax to pay, the costs to defend you can be substantial. Please see the attached leaflet for further information.

Please note that our normal annual fees do not cover the additional costs of handling tax enquiries and compliance checks.
