Fee Protection


HMRC has the power to inspect business premises and have established a penalty structure based on subjective 'reasonable care' clauses. It also uses the more efficient aspect enquiry to enable inspectors to target a greater number of taxpayers than before in order to identify non-compliant tax returns. HMRC's approach has the potential to result in lengthy investigations which can be complicated, and require our involvement.

The consequences and penalties associated with HMRC enquiries can be hard-hitting, therefore we believe that having the peace of mind by providing for professional fees is essential. We can focus our time and effort entirely on your investigation and you won't have to worry about expenses.


What does our scheme offer?

  • The equivalent of up to £75,000 of professional costs per incident resulting from HMRC investigations or disputes for both full and aspect enquiries, pre-disputes, reviews, compliance checks, or interventions.
  • The security of knowing that we can dedicate all the time and resources we need to represent you and you won't have to worry about our fees.
  • The knowledge that you are dealing with your own accountants rather than a stranger who doesn't know you or your affairs.
  • Peace of mind. Our scheme has been set up for us by Taxwise Services Limited, part of the Peninsula Business Services group, with over 30 years' experience.
  • Access to the Taxwise and Peninsula Business Services Health & Safety, Employment Law and Business Law Helplines for all clients.
