Tax Investigation Services

By subscribing to our fee protection service you are protected against the additional fees that would be incurred in engaging us to defend you or your company, should you be the subject of a full investigation by HM Revenue & Customs. Our fee protection service, or tax investigations service as it is sometimes known, is fully backed by an Insurance Policy which we have taken out with Vantage Fee Protect. We are able to make a claim in respect of the fees which we accrue when we defend a client who has subscribed to the service.

Our Pricing

We don’t particularly like “FROM” prices. When you go to a shop, everything is priced and you know exactly what the cost is to you. That is why we have a range of set fees for businesses that fit a certain criteria. For larger businesses, however, or those with more complicated affairs, we are more than happy to quote a fixed fee after we have had a discovery chat.
