The Accountant’s Circle Tax Fee Protection Scheme

A tax enquiry could cost your client their business... and cost you your client’s business!

“The Accountant’s Circle Tax Fee Protection Scheme” is a strategic alliance with PFP designed to help members provide better cover for their clients and increase practice profitability. PFP pioneered tax investigation fee protection insurance in the UK and has been supporting and working with thousands of accountancy practices across the UK for over 25 years, longer than any other company. Founded by a chartered accountant for accountants, PFP is the only major company in the UK to specialise in fee protection. Their market leading schemes have been designed to appeal to every type of practice however big or small they might be.

Tax enquiry work is the single biggest cause of fee dispute as clients often don’t appreciate the work and costs involved. The costs of a tax enquiry can be considerable and in the current economic climate, can put enormous strain on the finances of your clients and their ability to pay you on time.

Everyone is at risk of being selected:

  • every business and individual is at risk of investigation by HM Revenue and Customs who collect additional tax in over 80% of cases they investigate;
  • clients are now more aware of fee protection schemes - and they may challenge you for not offering this essential cover;
  • HMRC is becoming more aggressive in its investigations, which is why it’s more important than ever that your clients have the right scheme to meet their needs. They don’t have to give a reason for investigating and have the power to make unannounced visits at any time to your clients!

      1. We offer the widest protection in the marketplace
      2. We offer the lowest prices in the marketplace
      3. We can significantly increase the profitability of your scheme
