Do You Have HMRC Tax Investigation Protection In Place?


Do You Have HMRC Tax Investigation Protection In Place?

Tax Investigations Are Back on the Rise Across the UK: Protect Yourself and Your Business

As the likelihood of receiving a tax investigation increases, it's crucial for UK businesses to take proactive steps to protect themselves. HMRC investigations are ramping up, particularly from this time of year onwards. With the government working to reduce previously incurred debts, HMRC is keen on rigorously enforcing existing tax rules.

If you do not currently have HMRC Tax Investigation Protection cover with Blue Rocket Accounting, now might be the time to reconsider. This protection can help you avoid costly fees later down the line.

5 Factors Currently Putting You at Risk

  1. Rising Investigations: The temporary lull in investigations, coupled with rising costs, means that HMRC is eager to collect all owed funds.
  2. Submission Errors: Changes in how tax returns are submitted have led to mistakes, leaving companies exposed.
  3. Tip-Offs: Escalating tip-offs from disgruntled employees and suppliers require investigation to determine     their validity.
  4. HMRC’s Connect System: This system identifies changes in behaviour patterns, raising flags for investigators.
  5. Increased Banked Income: Businesses with a greater volume of banked income, due to a shift from cash to bank payments, have raised flags even when they have simply increased turnover over the last year.

Done Nothing Wrong?

Even if you haven’t done anything wrong, anyone can be selected for an investigation. No business is too small or too large for HMRC to challenge. Compliant, non-fraudulent companies can still be investigated. Unfortunately, even if HMRC agrees that your records are 100% accurate and there is no additional tax to pay, you will still need to pay the professional fees associated with a robust defence – potentially up to £10,000.

Tax investigation insurance covers these costs, giving you peace of mind as well as financial cover. We have seen how stressful undergoing a tax enquiry can be for a client, especially when confronted with a team of HMRC officers from across Tax, VAT, and PAYE. That’s why we believe it is essential to have experienced professional representation to take control of what could be a minefield.
