Impact on you
Tax investigations are time consuming, stressful and costly.
Investigations can last for many months and during this time, you could find yourself incurring accountancy fees as well as having to deal with costly business disruption and probing questions. Even if you’re found to owe nothing you will still have to pay your professional representation fees.
How the service works
In the unfortunate event that you are selected for investigation you can relax safe in the knowledge that there will be no professional fees to pay.

We’ll provide professional representation on all matters relating to your investigation, ensuring that the enquiry runs as smoothly as possible and providing you with peace of mind. We also deal with the insurers on your behalf.
