Fee protection

Each year, HMRC investigates hundreds of thousands of individuals and businesses in the UK. It has the powers to do this at random, at any time, and everyone is at risk. HMRC is now more active than ever before. Dependent on the size of the investigation, the costs for professional representation can run to thousands. For a small fee, these costs can be protected against.

HMRC has opened more investigations than ever before. In 2009, HMRC launched a new IT system called CONNECT which has raised an extra £3 billion in tax revenue. CONNECT enables HMRC to keep tabs on all sorts of information – including your bank details, past and present employment details, profit margins, land registry details and more. This allows it to build a picture of you and detect perceived anomalies in tax returns or accounts.
