Tax Enquiry Insurance

On average, full HMRC investigations last 16 months and could cost you and your business thousands of pounds in penalty taxes, interest and accountancy fees.

The Facts...

  • Nearly half of HMRC’s entire workforce is engaged in pursuing their compliance and enforcement agenda

  • The introduction of Making Tax Digital on 1st April 2019 will make it easier for HMRC to identify suitable cases for investigations

  • Over £400bn of sales a year are made via card and HMRC intends to exploit this data to check the accuracy of accounts submitted by SMEs

  • HMRC also carry out random investigations, so even if you have done nothing wrong, an investigation could still cost you money
