Tax Enquiry Protection
All our accountancy services
HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is putting extra resources into pursuing more tax. As a result, you may face an increased risk of an enquiry into your tax affairs.
HMRC now have wider powers, which means they are able to undertake an informal check of any and all areas of your tax affairs within a single visit or enquiry.
HMRC are expected to use the powers frequently and, as a consequence, enquiries will be more complex and the cost of responding higher. So, we believe it is important that you are sufficiently and appropriately protected.
Random, as well as targeted tax investigations take place, which means that any tax return can be selected for an investigation and you will incur additional accountancy fees, even if you’ve done nothing wrong.
As a protected client of ours, if you are selected for a tax enquiry we will aim to settle it quickly and minimise any final tax liabilities. Even so, it’s worth being aware that answering all of HMRC’s questions takes time and the enquiry could drag on for many months costing thousands of pounds, whatever the end result.
Get peace of mind, with cover of up to £100,000 and our considerable expertise in defending clients under enquiry by HMRC.
The tax enquiry protection service we promote through Croner Taxwise is backed by an insurance policy under which we can claim the costs of defending you. If you choose to take out the cover you will also have access to a helpful advice line that also covers the complex areas of Health & Safety and Employment Law, including:
Advice on creating watertight documentation such as staff contracts, policies and procedures.
Managing your staff absences.
Dealing with disciplinary and grievance issues.
Carrying out redundancies.
Negotiating settlement agreements.
Understanding TUPE transfers.
Please note: tax enquiry protection attracts an additional cost over and above our annual accountancy fees. Taking out this protection is not obligatory; however, clients who do not pay for this service will be liable for all additional fees as a consequence of an HMRC tax investigation.
