Fee Protection

You can protect against the cost of a tax enquiry.

Subscribing to our Tax Fee Protection Service means that:

You have protection for fees we incur dealing with an HMRC enquiry.

Ensuring you have the best possible defence.

Helping you to avoid having to pay additional tax.

As we are all aware, the post Covid world has put pressure on finances, especially those of the government who paid out millions of pounds in support. Consequently, there is an even greater emphasis on HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) to bring money back into the Exchequer through an increase in the number of tax enquiries they undertake. From this point of view the following measures have been put in place:

  • £79m of further Investment into HMRC to recover £725m in unpaid taxes over a 5-year period.
  • 2,500 additional HMRC compliance staff in 2022/23.
  • 30 plus digital sources being integrated including banks (UK and offshore), credit card transactions, social media, the DVLA and licencing authorities, as well as estate agents and the Land Registry.

We recommend that you get protected

Our normal annual fees do not cover the additional professional costs of handling tax enquiries and compliance checks. We therefore strongly recommend that you are protected against these unexpected costs by subscribing to a Tax Fee Protection service.

We have partnered with Vantage Tax Fee Protect Ltd who provide a competitive and thorough fee protection service. You can view a sample Summary of Service here. You can also see FAQ’s here.

As an additional benefit this protection provides complementary telephone access to employment, health & safety and general legal advisors.
