Shipleys LLP

Chartered Accountants and Professional Business Advisers

Fee protection

As a result of the increased risk of enquiries by HMRC and introduction of a harsher penalty regime, we offer our tax clients a Fee Protection Service.

For a fixed annual fee we will deal with any HMRC enquiries rather than charging on the normal basis of our time spent. This means that in the event of an enquiry you will not have to worry about the cost of our fees for dealing with it. Of course, any tax, penalties or surcharges payable as a result of the enquiry are not included.  The service covers our fees in handling the enquiry for you.

Please note that company and partnership rates include the business's directors and partners (for whom we act), except those who have gross rental income in excess of £50,000 or who are separately in business.  If you are eligible to participate in more than one category, you will need to choose which is best for you.

If you would like to take up the service please speak to your normal contact or Marlene Wallace at Shipleys who will send you the tariff sheet and application form. You will be able to participate from the date we receive payment.  We will write to you within 21 days to confirm you have been accepted into the service.

Specific advice should be obtained before taking action, or refraining from taking action, on any of the subjects covered above.
