In the UK we live in a self assessment tax environment,
where taxpayers are responsible for making their own Tax Returns.
Tax liabilities are then calculated purely on the basis of these
Returns. HMRC 'police' this system by having extensive
powers to investigate the accuracy of these Returns by opening
targetted or random tax
enquiries, record checks and by conducting VAT and PAYE control visits.
In response to this increased risk of our clients
being subjected to an enquiry, we offer clients the opportunity
to take out fee protection insurance before we submit their tax
return. You can then rest assured that if a tax enquiry is opened,
any additional professional fees (excluding all of the VAT) that we charge you for dealing with
this enquiry will be paid direct to us by your insurance policy.
We recommend that all of our higher risk clients and those who wish to insure against uncertainty join this scheme.
