Tax fee protection service

Tax investigations are time consuming, disruptive and can cause a great deal of stress.

We offer a Tax Fee Protection Service which will give you increased peace of mind in case of an HMRC investigation. The expense and worry of tax enquiry activity is something this service can help to shield you from.

Working with a leading provider of fee protection cover, we have arranged to offer our clients a comprehensive fee protection package at competitive rates.

How does tax fee protection work?

Tax fee protection is designed to reimburse you or your company for the costs of representation (such as accountancy fees) if you are selected by HMRC for enquiry. With professional fees properly underwritten, you are able to challenge unreasonable or opaque tax assessments from HMRC.

If you’re a BKL client, we strongly advise you to subscribe to the service. Once HMRC starts an investigation, you are responsible for providing all the information HMRC demands and it is likely you will need our help. Tax enquiries can cost many thousands of pounds and take several years to settle. Our service will cover professional fees up to £100,000 and help us to get the best possible outcome for you.

Fee protection is provided in the event of:

  • Full and aspect enquiries into corporation tax returns, partnership tax returns, sole trader tax returns, personal tax returns
  • Disputes into VAT, employer compliance (PAYE, P11D and NIC), IR35, personal tax returns

Following the huge financial cost of the UK Government’s coronavirus support schemes, HMRC has an even greater focus on its tax receipts. There has never been a better time to safeguard against the threat of enquiry.
