Tax investigation cover

As chartered accountants in Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwickshire, we understand that if you are the focus of an HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) enquiry or dispute, you need expert help and support through the process, but without the worry of how to afford the costs involved.

Our Tax Investigation Service reimburses the professional fees incurred in providing first class representation should you be selected for any tax enquiry – excluding routine PAYE and VAT inspections, unless there is a dispute. Please see our Service Summary for full terms and conditions.

While it may be tempting to save on additional costs in the hope that the worst case scenario won’t happen to you, the cost of an HMRC tax enquiry is likely to be significant.

As investigations regularly last two years or longer, the fees for having the right defence to fight your corner can run into several thousands of pounds. With Inspectors having gained increased investigative powers from April 2009, enquiries are likely to become longer, pushing costs up further.

While you focus on your day-to-day affairs, we will use our knowledge of tax legislation and experience in dealing with HMRC enquiries to bring the investigation to a satisfactory conclusion. You will have the peace of mind that, no matter how long the process takes, the cost of our fees will be reimbursed.

Our service encompasses not only your business, but also your personal tax returns.  For partnerships and limited companies, our service encompasses the personal tax returns of all partners and directors for whom we act. As an additional benefit, subscribers can access a 24-hour business legal helpline, providing advice on employment, health and safety, and commercial issues. In an increasingly litigious society, this can be extremely valuable, and at no extra cost.
