Fee Protection

Tax Fee Protection Insurance

In recent years HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) have been using various methods to increase the volume of enquiries and investigations launched into clients’ Tax affairs. This has very often been into businesses and private individuals that have apparently clean tax returns and seemingly no real reason to be investigated.

The end result of these unwarranted intrusions is very often either marginal or nil additional tax being due.  However, answering and defending these HMRC enquiries takes time, effort and specific expertise, and the resulting fees incurred in dealing with such matters ends up being an additional unwanted cost, which can easily escalate to thousands of pounds.

In view of the above and numerous client requests we have partnered with Qdos Vantage to provide a Tax Fee Protection Insurance. Qdos Vantage is a market leader with one of the most comprehensive polices and nil excess. We recommend that you consider taking protection against the additional fees that will arise in the event of a tax enquiry or dispute as these are not included with your current fees.
