Why do I need a fee protection service?

HMRC enquiry activity is at record levels, as they’ve been tasked with increasing tax revenues and have been granted wider powers of enquiry, carrying out Business Record Checks, Compliance Visits and Interventions covering all taxes. Anyone that pays tax can come under enquiry, and many enquiries are selected completely at random. Fee protection insurance helps protect you from this. Even if your tax return and business records are accurate and the taxman finds no errors, accountancy fees can cost thousands.

Our fee protection has no policy excess, a no nonsense policy covering you for dealing with any correspondence from HMRC and attendance at any meeting with HMRC.
