What is the tax investigation fee protection service?
It is an insurance backed service which protects you from accountancy fees associated in dealing with any HMRC enquiry or dispute.

Why would I be investigated?
There is no definitive answer as to why, but there are a lot of possibilities; filing a late return, errors that require correction, dealing with cash, HMRC receiving a tip-off, working in a targeted business sector, to name a few.
The revenue’s ‘snooper computer’ Connect collates data from banks, Land Registry records, Visa and MasterCard transactions, DVLA, council tax, VAT registration documents, Airbnb, and believe it or not even your social media profiles. A common misconception is that a mistake has been made but that is rarely the case. Random enquiries can and do happen.

How much does an enquiry cost?
Representing you can easily run into thousands of pounds but will vary from enquiry to enquiry, even if no extra tax is paid at the end. Immediate professional representation from your accountant is essential in successfully and quickly dealing with HMRC enquiries, but that will come at a cost, and will not be in your budget.
