Fee Protection

Our insurers have advised us that that they have seen an unprecedented level of claims this year and that the number of claims notified was 46% higher than last year. HM Revenue and Customs are targeted to deliver an extra £7 billion per annum in compliance yield by 2014/15 which is likely to be achieved through a mix of targeted campaigns and general enquiries.

Bright Brown have considerable expertise in defending clients under enquiry by HMRC. If you are selected for a tax enquiry or a visit, we will aim to deal with any issues raised by HMRC quickly and, in the current economic climate, we feel it is now even more appropriate to offer our clients protection from these costs which can regularly amount to over £4,000. Even an apparently straightforward aspect enquiry can cost over £1,000.
