Protect Yourself From The Cost Of An HMRC Investigation

Introducing My Business Hub

Fee Protection

At Plus Accounting we can provide you with Fee Protection Insurance to protect you from the costs that may arise as a result of a Tax or VAT Enquiry from HMRC.

A tax investigation could cost you money even if you’ve done nothing wrong and anyone can be selected: a business, a director or an individual tax payer.

The Fee Protection we can provide is an all-embracing Insurance Policy that provides you with the ultimate protection.

The detail

The service covers up to the equivalent of £100,000 towards our professional fees resulting from an HMRC Enquiry.

Any compliance check started by HMRC regarding your compliance with:

  • Self-Assessment Enquiries.
  • Schedule 36 interventions or inspections.
  • VAT or PAYE Compliance Visits (where professional representation is necessary).
  • Correspondence and disputes following a VAT or PAYE Compliance Visit.
  • Status disputes.
  • CIS disputes.
  • National Minimum Wage enquiries.
  • Inheritance Tax enquiries.
  • Gift Aid enquiries.
  • Child Tax Credit enquiries.
  • Special Civil Investigations opened under Code of Practice 8 (limited to £15k and provided fraud is disproved).
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax enquiries.

What’s excluded?

The key exclusions are fraud, criminal prosecutions, tax avoidance schemes, deliberate omissions, any tax, fines, penalties or interest that you may be required to pay and any enquiries that commence prior to the commencement date of the policy.

Making a claim

In the event of any correspondence or communication from HMRC relating to a potential enquiry or dispute, please contact us straight away to obtain immediate professional advice. We will make a claim against your Policy and credit the proceeds against your liability for fees. You could be liable for fees not covered by the Policy. You will be asked to pay any VAT element if you are VAT registered.

Peace of Mind

Included as part of the Fee Protection Insurance is comprehensive access to the Employment Law, Health and Safety and HR expertise, all at no cost to you.

You’ll gain valuable access to highly experienced consultants who can provide you with their guidance and knowledge on a wide variety of subjects and issues.
