The Tax Investigation Service covers our professional fees that result from most types of HMRC enquiry or investigation. Unlike some fee protection products that appoint their own advisors, our Service ensures that we can represent you throughout. We believe that we know your business best and we want to be there for you when you need us most.
Under the Tax Investigation Service, we can reclaim our costs in protecting you during a tax investigation and we will be able to defend you in the event HMRC check your books and records or visit you to check PAYE or VAT Returns.
The tax investigation service, which is backed by an insurance policy that we hold with Professional Fee Protection Limited (PfP®), will cover our professional fees that result from most types of HMRC enquiry or investigation (full details are listed in the ‘service summary’).
For peace of mind, we offer protection to all of our clients in the event of a tax investigation as tax investigations are expensive and can last several months and even years.
We are free to work on your case for as long as it takes to bring about a resolution, up to the policy limit.
For limited companies and partnerships, the tax investigation service provides inclusive cover for all relevant individuals. When a business is covered by the service, all its directors, partners and their spouses and company secretaries also receive representation during an investigation into their personal tax affairs, as well as those of their business.
To provide this service, we need to be acting as the tax returns agent for the individuals in question.
An additional benefit is that clients will have access to a business support helpline. A friendly team will be available to advise on common legal issues, such as:
Advice from a dedicated team of legal consultants, barristers, solicitors and legal executives
Unrestricted access to use the service
You can call regarding any commercial legal problem:
While the service is essentially provided by telephone, consultants will enter into correspondence with members where necessary. This could entail looking at any documents, which may be essential for the consultant to consider prior to giving advice, for example, contracts of employment, leases etc. Please note that the service does not extend to corresponding with third parties, only with the individual about their legal rights.
