Protect yourself from the costs of a tax investigation

Updated: Sep 9, 2022

If you’ve ever received that dreaded letter through the door, you’ll know that a tax investigation is costly in at least two ways:

  1. Possible discovery of underpaid tax, tax penalties and interest

  2. Accountancy fees for the time spent defending your case

Whilst you can’t insure against HMRC penalties or what they might discover to be unpaid tax, you can protect yourself against your accountants’ time in defending your case, ensuring that the final cost of tax and penalties is as low as possible.

Why does Massey Accounting Company offer a Tax Enquiry Business Protection Service?

If you do ever receive that dreaded letter, your first port-of-call should be your accountant. But sadly, in some cases, tax investigation fees cause strain on our relationship with unprotected clients. The alternative might be to accept the assertions of HMRC and prematurely settle the enquiry. We would feel much more comfortable having the freedom to defend your case to the hilt!
