Fee Protection Service

Fee Protection Service

Cavendish Accountancy can provide you with a Fee Protection Service to protect you from the costs that may arise as a result of a Tax or VAT Enquiry from HMRC. It covers HMRC visits as well as written enquiries.

An investigation could cost you money even if you’ve done nothing wrong and anyone can be selected: a business, a director or an individual taxpayer.

The service covers up to the equivalent of £100,000 towards our professional fees resulting from an HMRC enquiry including the following compliance checks:

  • Income Tax and/or Corporation Tax Self-Assessment
  • PAYE and National Insurance
  • VAT
  • Construction Industry
  • A compliance check carried out under HMRC Code of Practice 8 (provided fraud is disproved).

Peace of Mind

Included as part of the Fee Protection Service is comprehensive access to the Employment Law, Health and Safety and HR expertise, all at no cost to you.

You’ll gain valuable access to highly experienced consultants who can provide you with their guidance and knowledge on a wide variety of subjects and issues.

Although comprehensive there are, of course, some key exclusions that cannot be included in the service such as fraud, deliberate omissions and any tax, fines, penalties or interest that may become payable.

If you are interested in this service then we will be happy to provide further details once you become a client.


We appreciate that each client is individual and, as such, have their own specific needs. Accordingly, we will tailor our service with you and establish our level of involvement depending on your circumstances – our friendly, experienced team are here to help you as much or as little as you require.

We offer cost-effective accountancy and tax solutions with the peace of mind that your work has been completed by an experienced, qualified accountant. Our fees are generally time based and will depend on both the volume and complexity of the work undertaken. We ensure costs are kept to a minimum by matching the type of work to a suitably experienced member of our team. However we are happy to discuss a fixed fee basis if this is more appropriate to your circumstances.
