Business protection service

Our business protection service gives you peace of mind that, should HMRC look into your tax returns, expert advice and support is on hand.

The likelihood of your business facing a random tax enquiry has grown significantly. HMRC officers are now proactively targeting businesses, using increased powers and advanced software to search for the smallest discrepancies in companies’ financial records.

A comprehensive business protection service in Wiltshire

Last year, tax enquiries and investigations brought in over £30bn for HMRC.

HMRC inspectors can freely visit your business premises and review your financial records, including tax returns, PAYE information, and more. An investigation may not be limited to your business affairs – it can cover your personal affairs as well.

The increased frequency and complexity of such enquiries has led to climbing professional fees, which, understandably, is a cause for concern amongst business owners.

Many businesses in Devizes, Marlborough, Calne, Chippenham, Melksham, Pewsey, Royal Wootton Bassett, Trowbridge and other parts of Wiltshire have benefitted from our fee protection service. In the event you face a tax enquiry, we will work with you, resolving queries as quickly as possible whilst mitigating any additional tax due.

Our experienced accountants will deal directly with HMRC on your behalf, enabling you to focus on running a successful business. Our tax investigation service will insure up to £100,000 of fees incurred, should you face an investigation, visit, or enquiry from HMRC regarding:

Corporation Tax
Income Tax
PAYE including National Minimum Wage, P11ds, and IR35
• Construction Industry Scheme
• Gift Aid legislation
Capital Gains Tax
• Stamp Duty (including Land Tax)
Inheritance Tax

Legal advice and Health & Safety support

The business protection service we deliver also gives you access to talented legal advisers who can offer guidance on commercial and employment law, along with Health & Safety support.

The employment law specialists can provide proactive HR advice, helping you to optimise employee management.

The package also includes access to the services of skilled commercial legal consultants and solicitors who can give you expert guidance on corporate, contract, property and landlord and tenant laws.
