Fee Protection Insurance

Fee Protection Insurance

22nd February 2021

To provide our clients with peace of mind in the unfortunate event that they are selected for an enquiry by HMRC, we have arranged a ‘whole of practice’ Tax Investigation Insurance Policy, covering all our clients without them having to pay an insurance policy premium.

Whilst HMRC enquiries are perhaps becoming less frequent, they are better targeted and the cost of professional support and defence can add up. Even when the outcome of the enquiry results in no adjustments to your tax position, the costs associated with an enquiry can still be significant. We therefore wanted to provide all of our clients with the assurance that, in the unfortunate case they are selected for such an enquiry, professional fees need not be a concern.

Our fee protection service is with Markel Tax. Markel Tax are one of the leading UK tax consultancy and insurance providers of fee protection solutions. The service is designed to limit the damage and stress of having to deal with an HMRC enquiry.

As an additional benefit of the insurance cover, our business clients have access to an on-line Law Hub which contains guides and legal document templates on areas such as Data Protection, Employment & Health & Safety. There is also a business legal support team, to advise on commercial, employment, and health and safety matters.

Our Tax Investigation policy means that we will:

  • Provide you with full representation and challenge HMRC’s arguments.
  • Put you on an equal footing with HMRC from the start of an enquiry.
  • Ensure that you have a robust defence based on the facts, not your ability to pay.
  • Protect your interests and work to achieve a fair enquiry outcome without you facing an unwanted accountancy bill.
