Tax Investigation Protection Policy

A tax investigation occurs when HMRC decides they want to review either your personal or business tax affairs to check that you have paid the correct amount of taxes. Investigations are carried out by a specialist department that is dedicated to uncovering fraudulent or tax avoidance activities. Every year they have an increasing target to take criminal proceedings against perpetrators, which is why more and more people are receiving notification that their tax affairs are being investigated. When this happens, it is important to seek out professional help such as from a chartered accountant who will be able to support you with your case. This work incurs extra costs and can rapidly reach the thousands of pounds mark.
