Tax Investigation Fee Protection
With the tax authorities pouring extra resources into collecting more tax and VAT, business and individual taxpayers are more likely than ever to face an enquiry.
These investigations may be carried out at random and even where there is a specific issue, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) can raise enquiries without initially identifying the area that concerns them.
At Baines Jewitt, we have wide-ranging expertise in advising clients facing HMRC enquiries. However, the complex nature of enquiries and disputes, which can often continue for many months, mean that the costs can be substantial, even when no tax is found to be due.
For our clients’ peace of mind, we offer a fee protection scheme, in collaboration with Taxwise, a market leader in this field.
By taking advantage of this scheme, you will be covered for the full cost (up to a maximum of £75,000 in most cases) of our professional fees for any HMRC enquiry, review or intervention.
Knowing that the fees for our professional services in achieving the best possible outcome for you are taken care of will give you real confidence in working with us to pursue your case, rather than agreeing to an early settlement that you may find unsatisfactory.
Our fee protection cover for business clients also includes access to a business support helpline, which provides expert advice on commercial and legal matters, employment and personnel and health and safety.
