At some point you or your business may be subject to a compliance review from HM Revenue & Customs. This could have been triggered through a routine enquiry, through mistakes made on submitted returns or because of information that has been brought to their attention.
Compliance reviews are performed to ensure that companies, individuals and employers are paying the right amount of tax. Such reviews can be time consuming, stressful, complicated and ultimately financially costly.
Any individual or business subject to a compliance review from HM Revenue & Customs will need to act promptly and carefully consider the responses provided. At FD Accountants we can assist you with a compliance review from HM Revenue & Customs, assisting you from the moment a compliance review is commenced up to the point it is closed. This would typically include providing you with the right advice, attending any meetings and corresponding with HM Revenue & Customs.
In addition to this, we are also able to offer our clients Fee Protection Insurance, which for a small annual premium, will provide you with the peace of mind that any accountancy fees incurred as part of a compliance review will be covered.
