TAX INVESTIGATIONS & DISPUTES / FEE PROTECTION
You don’t need to evade tax, avoid tax, or even make a mistake to find yourself with a tax investigation. Clients are increasingly at risk of a tax investigation by HMRC as they seek to increase tax revenues. Whilst keeping good records and submitting returns on time can reduce the likelihood of this there is always a risk of being investigated purely at random. Counters offers its clients fee protection insurance to meet our costs of representing you in the event of an inquiry. And whilst we can't insure a pre-existing investigation or dispute we can still offer you assistance to sort it out!
