She explains everything in plain English and I am confident that I get full tax relief where entitled. The fees are reasonable and quoted in advance, and so there are no surprises!

Premier Fee Protection Service


We, like many accountants, have become increasingly concerned about the increase in HMRC investigations. This is specialist work and attention to detail is essential as well as access to specialist advice and so we have set up a Fee Protection Service that protects our clients from the potential cost of accountancy fees that would be incurred in the event of an intervention, review, investigation or dispute with the tax authorities and gives our accountancy practice access to specialist tax investigation experts. This protection is included in our fee quotes.

Key points:

  • Premier Fee Protection does not pay tax, fines, penalties which may result from the investigation but it will cover the cost of accountancy fees (providing tax returns have been submitted on time in prior years and the investigation is not of a criminal nature). 

  • Even if you have filed your returns on time, keep good records and are confident your accounts/tax returns are correct, you are still at risk of an enquiry.  In 2008, the Revenue looked into the affairs of more than 62,100 individuals, but that number is expected to soar.

  • HMRC now have powers to inspect your records unannounced!  Please call us immediately if HMRC turn up at your premises and we will advise you of your rights!

  • We usually offer fixed fee quotes but tax enquiry work cannot be fixed fee priced, it is specialist work and hourly charge out fees vary from £50 to £150 depending on the level of expertise required, so including this service in the quote really should give you peace of mind!

  • We understand that budgets are now tighter than ever, and that you may think fee protection is something you can do without.  Ironically, it’s the treasury’s budget deficit that might result in an investigation on your own accounts. HMRC is looking at ways to fill a multi-billion pound shortfall in Treasury revenue and non compliant tax returns have been earmarked as an integral part of achieving this.

  • The Business Support Helpline is a free specialist helpline provided for my clients as part of the Fee Protection Service and this is particularly useful for new businesses.  This gives businesses access to various specialist business advice, please call me if you need to use this service.
