Tax Investigation Protection Service

Burgess Hodgson offer a facility to take out insurance with Croner Taxwise, the market leader in the specialist field for Tax Protection Insurance. This was introduced in response to clients’ concerns and the change in HM Revenue & Customs’ approach which was to concentrate their energies into investigations to ensure compliance. This increased the number of cases being reviewed.
If your Tax affairs were investigated, we can help you at every step of the process. There would be substantial accountancy costs involved but these would be covered by the insurance policy offered so you would not be chargeable.

If you have any queries about this policy, please contact your usual Burgess Hodgson contact or email info@burgesshodgson.co.uk
