Markel Tax

Fee protection insurance

Fee protection insurance protects businesses and their advisers against an increasing number of HMRC enquiries. For your clients, HMRC investigations can prove a real headache. For your firm, an unexpectedly large bill can put a strain on a client relationship.

Markel Tax provides accountancy practices with tailored and appropriate fee protection solutions, designed to pay claims for the most frequent and relevant HMRC enquiries, so that the practice and its clients can maximise the benefit of our cover. Our insurance is designed to limit the damage and stress to your business and personal clients of having to deal with an HMRC enquiry

What’s more, the policy will settle your professional fees in full without involving the client.

Our fee protection schemes provide access to an in-house tax and VAT helpline that handles over 50,000 calls a year, and over 60 tax specialists able to support you when defending an HMRC enquiry. They also provide invaluable telephone access to a 24-hour 365-day a year legal advice line.  With the average SME facing four legal issues a year, it is a real benefit that the accountancy practice can offer clients access to specialist, independent employment and business legal advice – for free.

With our unique marketing platform you can regularly send topical content, relevant to their business. You add value to your service and keep your firm at the forefront of their mind.   
Providing peace of mind and creating certainty is central to what Markel Tax does. With our fee protection insurance, your client will pay a fraction of the likely cost of an enquiry, and you’ll support them with a valuable add-on service, whilst avoiding difficult discussions over fees.
