Tax Investigation Protection Available

Our Tax Investigation Service will cover our professional fees that result from most types of HMRC enquiry or investigation. Unlike some fee protection products that appoint their own advisors, our Service ensures that we can represent you throughout. We believe that we know your business best and we want to be there for you when you need us most.

Under the Tax Investigation Service, we can reclaim our costs in protecting you during a tax investigation and we will be able to defend you in the event HMRC check your books and records or visit you to check PAYE or VAT Returns. Protection starts from the very first request.

Our tax investigation service, which is backed by an insurance policy that we hold with Croner Taxwise will cover our professional fees that result from most types of HMRC enquiry or investigation (full details are listed in the ‘service summary’).

Peace of mind

For peace of mind, we recommend that every client should be protected in the event of a tax investigation and subscribe to our Tax Investigation Service as tax investigations are expensive and can last several months and even years.

We will be free to work on your case for as long as it takes to bring about a resolution, up to the policy limit.

For limited companies and partnerships, the tax investigation service provides inclusive cover for all relevant individuals. When a business signs up to the service, all its directors, partners and their spouses and company secretaries, will also receive representation during an investigation into their personal tax affairs, as well as those of their business.

To provide this service, we need to be acting as the personal tax agent for the individuals in question. A sole trade subscription is, however, required where the individual has any self-employment income (outside of the main business) and/or gross rental income received as a landlord that exceeds £50,000 or more per annum. If this additional cover is not taken out, these particular sources of income will not be covered by any future HMRC investigation into the individual’s personal tax affairs.

  • Commercial legal matters

HMRC have the powers to make unannounced visits to any business
Sometimes these visits can be late at night. Clients who subscribe to our Tax Investigation Service will now be provided with access to a free helpline to provide you with expert advice on how to deal with this situation “there and then” should you receive an unannounced visit from HMRC.

When faced with this very real threat it is important you have the support and advice of an expert 24/7 and 365 days of the year. Our “out of hours” helpline will do this for you. It is not uncommon for HMRC to visit a business at 11.00 pm at night. Should this happen to you it is great to know that you will have the peace of mind of instant access to an expert to advise you accordingly.

"My company has used DRG for a number of years. They are proactive and efficient with all aspects of their work. They keep on top of our tax and accounting requirements, and help with the development of our business strategy.

We view DRG as a key supplier and crucially a partner and would highly recommend the firm – in particular to other fast growing businesses."

David Folkman, Director

"I’ve worked with a number of accountants over the years and have never found another company who offers the same level of care, support and professionalism. They’re always on hand to offer advice and guidance, above and beyond the service that I pay for. I would recommend them wholeheartedly."

Joe Hill, Director

"Very supportive and friendly company from day one."

Outdoor Academy

"I have always worked as an employee so when I decided to set up my own business, I did not know where to start. DRG took the time to explain how working as a sole trader would be more beneficial to me setting up a limited company (which I had always thought was a requirement for running a business). They gave me practical advice on the records I need to keep as well as general guidance on setting up my business and helped me claim a large tax refund after my first year of trading."

Sole Trader

"I have been a client through a number of different ventures with DRG since 2007. They have proved the benefits of a local firm with Big 4 experience in providing sound business and tax advice by being accessible, having in-depth knowledge of my business and able to form good working relationships at different levels with me and my staff. We also enjoy the benefit of their excellent accountancy and payroll services. I couldn’t recommend them more highly."
