HMRC Fee Protection Insurance

HMRC can conduct routine enquiries into any aspect of your taxation affairs at any time.  Whilst we make every effort to ensure our clients are tax compliant and pay the correct amount of tax, we have no control over when HMRC may request to review your affairs.  This can result in unplanned professional fees.  

We have introduced a Tax Investigation Service to help protect clients against the professional costs involved in a tax investigation or enquiry. This service is backed by an insurance policy we have taken out in our own name.  Dealing with a tax investigation is not included in our normal fees and the costs involved could be substantial.

What is a Tax Investigation Service?

It is a service set up by us and is backed by an insurance policy we have taken out in our own name with Professional Fee Protection (PFP) and protects our clients who suffer a tax enquiry. For a small annual fee, you can join our Service and receive the benefits this provides for yourself and your business.  

The Service is backed by an insurance policy that the practice has arranged through Professional Fee Protection. When you subscribe to our service we are able to make a claim against our insurance policy held with PFP in respect of our fees incurred.

What are the main benefits to subscribing clients of this Service?
  • We will defend you, if and when you are selected for a tax enquiry by HMRC
  • The potentially high costs of professional fees for that defence will be claimed under the practices’ insurance policy
  • It will not be necessary to accept unreasonable tax charges by HMRC due to concerns about professional fees
  • You will also get free access to a 24/7 business legal helpline
