Why do you need the Fee Protection Service?

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) can enquire into the accounts, business affairs, tax returns, savings and lifestyle of anyone without giving any reason whatsoever, and are establishing many specific industry taskforces.

If you are chosen for investigation, it could require us to spend a lot of time dealing with it for you, and could cost many thousands of pounds in fees to deal with. We will assist you to fully answer HMRC’s questions and show you are paying the correct amount of tax, this requires our expertise and time, and such costs are not included in your annual fees.

Just as you take out contents insurance to protect your home or business, our Tax Enquiry Fee Protection Service covers you for our fees when dealing with an HMRC Enquiry.

The Cover

No nonsense policy allowing MNA to defend you and deal with all enquiry correspondence from HMRC, as well as attending any meetings with HMRC. All our costs will be covered under the service.

Complete peace of mind, with no claims forms to fill in. No ‘Honesty Clause’. Uniquely, claims are not dependant on whether any blame falls on the client, and are not affected by innocent errors and omissions identified by HMRC, late submission of accounts or tax returns while covered, or by the level of penalties imposed. Put simply, if you’ve got something wrong, you are still covered. No excesses apply at all if a claim is made.

Expenses Covered

Our professional fees up to a limit of £50,000 per claim.


The cost is calculated at 15% of Annual Relevant Accountancy Fees, subject to a maximum of £295 per annum, plus VAT.

Charging as a % of fees is completely fair as it relates directly to the complexity of your affairs, rather than flat rates for all irrespective of size.

Obtaining Protection

If you would like to take advantage of this service please download the Tax Enquiry Fees Protection Service Brochure and then complete, tear out and return the ‘Fees Protection Service Request’ form towards the back on page 9.
