Tax enquiry and tax investigation fee insurance

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is able to launch investigations into both personal and company tax payers completely at random. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that you can protect yourself against the cost of our fees for supporting you through any such investigations by taking out tax enquiry fee insurance.

Whilst fee insurance won’t cover any penalties, fines or owed taxes that HMRC may charge, it can at least offer peace of mind in covering your related accountancy fees, however much work turns out to be required.

For clients without insurance, we have to charge for tax enquiry work on a “time spent” basis rather than via a fixed fee, as the amount of work required is too unpredictable.

Enquiry-related work typically involves collating information as requested by HMRC, dealing with their queries and, if applicable, helping our client to negotiate a settlement figure (for penalty fees, owed taxes, interest, etc).

Total costs can soon add up and, even if HMRC finds nothing as a result of their investigation, victory could still leave a bitter taste, as you remain responsible for your own accountancy fees.

Whilst we can’t prevent HMRC from raising an enquiry, we’re able to offer support during their investigations – and if you’re covered by tax enquiry fee insurance, you won’t need to concern yourself about our fees.

I found Hazel via her helpful replies on a UK business forum. I was specifically looking for a switched-on, friendly accountant who understood how an agile, modern online business operates. Her forum replies echoed the experience I have had since choosing Balanced Accounting - calm, knowledgeable, patient and fully in control. I have come to rely on Hazel completely and am very happy to do so. Highly recommended and a breath of fresh air!

Hazel has provided our companies with a superb service. We decided to use Balanced Accounting because of their ethical approach and have been delighted with what they have achieved for us and their very friendly and personal touch. As people new to the world of limited companies they have guided us every step of the way and made our accounting very easy to manage. We could not have asked for more.

Hazel Wells at Balanced Accounting works for us as Company Secretary and accountant for our estate management company. Quite a complex set up in a small way, but the work has been done with speed, efficiency and, in some tricky situations, a good deal of diplomacy. As a small organisation the personal touch is very evident and very welcome.
