Protection from HMRC investigations

by | Jul 29, 2020

HMRC enquiry activity is more focused and better targeted than ever before. In 2017-18, HMRC collected £30.3 billion through compliance activity. There are now, many more trained investigation specialists, who are using the latest technology and information at their disposal to launch campaigns and taskforces to maximise tax revenues.  

HMRC’s Connect System currently selects 9 out of every 10 enquires and is designed to identify those who may have paid too little tax.  Even if you’ve done nothing wrong, anyone can be selected – meaning no one is immune to scrutiny. 

The solution

Each year we invite all our clients to consider taking out tax investigations insurance.  This enables us to defend you in the unfortunate case that you are selected for an enquiry without worrying about the cost. 

We are confident that the insurance delivers the most comprehensive cover against any potential fees arising from professional representation in the event of an HMRC enquiry.

In order to ensure our team are working in the safest possible conditions we are having to adminster the scheme slightly differently this year.   

We will be writing to all “renewal” client by email, inviting you to take out cover via our secure portal. 

We will also be contacting all other eligible clients, by post with information about our policy for 2020/2021 and how you take out cover.  

 Whether you are renewing an existing policy or wishing to take out cover for the first time, you can do this via our secure portal which can be accessed via this link

If you have any questions, please email  This is a very busy time but a member of our team will revert back to you within 48 hours.
