Tax Investigation Service with Abbey Tax Insurance.

With the Government looking to reduce the massive national debt it is likely that there will be even more pressure on Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC) to bring in additional monies to the Exchequer. Add to that the new far-reaching powers of inspection granted to HMRC in 2009 and it is likely to mean that tax enquiries will be more complex than ever, subsequently increasing the costs of representation.

Our Tax Investigations Service is designed to reimburse the costs of your defence in the event that you are selected for enquiry, whilst at the same time providing you with the best possible representation and assurance that you won't have to concede to the Revenue's demands on a purely commercial basis.

As an additional benefit, all business clients who subscribe to our service also have 24hour access to a Business Legal Helpline; this is a valuable service available to subscribers at no additional cost. This helpline is manned by over 70 specialist lawyers who can provide advice on Employment Law, Health & Safety and Commercial issues.

By subscribing to the service you will benefit from costly tax enquiries which can take several years to settle. In 2008/2009, HMRC collected an additional £12billion through compliance activities and all taxpayers are at risk.

For more information on this scheme, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
