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.

The service is only available to our clients for whom we file their tax returns and the cost is very competitive.

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.

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