Tax Investigation

Delivering Comprehensive Protection.

We are inviting all of our clients to subscribe to our Tax Investigation Service.

We are partnered with a market-leading provider, Markel Tax, who have an excellent reputation within the accountancy profession, in order to offer you the best available service.

HMRC enquires are better targeted and are being undertaken with an unprecedented level of detail and persistence. In 2018/19, the total tax revenue increased by £22bn to £627.9bn with compliance activity yielding £34.1bn – a 12.5% increase in additional tax on 2017/18.

The cost of defending yourself professionally is potentially huge; enquiries are taking longer and the defence costs are increasing. Even when the outcome of the enquiry results in no adjustments to your tax position, the cost of the defence can be just as costly.

We provide a valuable Tax Investigation Service which enables us to defend you in the unfortunate case that you are selected for an enquiry without worrying about the cost. We are confident that the service delivers comprehensive protection against any potential fees arising from professional representation in the event of a HMRC enquiry.


The fee for the annual subscription to this service is as follows (inc VAT):

Limited Company – £168.00

Partnership – £138.00

Additionally, HMRC continue to review directors and partners personal tax returns in insolation and have made it known that they continue to target ‘high-net wealth’ individuals. We also therefore recommend that you also consider personal cover for an additional premium of £60.00 (inc VAT) per individual to provide all round protection.
