HM Revenue & Customs Investigation Service

Why you need greater protection than ever before

Whether you are a sole trader, partnership or limited company, both your business and your private finances can be subject to close scrutiny by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). Our statistical analysis shows that very nearly half of all investigations are settled without any additional tax due. However, being the subject of a tax investigation can still be a stressful experience. This is where we can help.

We will liaise with HMRC on your behalf and provide expert help and support. So if you do find yourself subject to an enquiry, don’t panic – let us do the hard work for you.

Can you withstand such detailed investigation?

There are many reasons why HMRC may conduct an investigation into your business; even if your records are excellent and you have always paid your tax on time, you can still be picked at random.

Whatever the reason, investigations are renowned for their length and complexity. They can cause a great deal of anxiety and distract you from running your business, and they often prove extremely costly - in fact the fees you end up paying can often end up being greater than any tax you may owe.

The simple solution

Our Investigation Protection Service offers a scheme that is easy to understand, and which provides protection for up to £50,000 of professional fees in the event of an investigation by HMRC, covering such areas as:

  • Enquiries into self assessment tax returns
  • VAT disputes
  • National insurance contributions
  • Employer compliance queries.

HMRC aspect enquiries into self assessment tax returns are also covered up to the value of £5,000.

Includes unlimited access to the Business and Commercial Legal telephone helpline.

With premiums from only £50.00 + VAT, can you afford not to be protected?

This service is available to clients of Coates and Partners Limited only. For further details please contact us.
