Do I need tax investigations protection?

Posted on by Jane Fretwell

HMRC are using every avenue available to them to identify tax discrepancies.  It is worth considering that the representation costs for a typical tax investigation can often escalate, not because you have made a mistake, but because you are required to prove yourself innocent of any wrong-doing.

With HMRC investigation activity now commonplace and ever more innovative; please take a few moments to consider how the costs of a tax enquiry would impact on you and your business.

Unfortunately, we can’t stop you from being selected for an enquiry, but we can ensure you can afford a full defence if it happens.
