Tax indemnity insurance

Tax indemnity insurance is an incredibly useful tool when negotiating mergers, acquisitions and business restructures. Deadlock can arise where the parties involved are unable to allocate tax risks between themselves. A typical example might be a vendor not being prepared to indemnify the purchaser against an unfavourable tax outcome.

Markel’s specialist tax indemnity insurance solves this type of problem by indemnifying the insured for any additional tax that becomes due following a business merger, sale or restructure. By removing the obstruction, the product facilitates the completion of a transaction that might otherwise flounder.

Our tax indemnity insurance can also provide certainty in a number of other scenarios including:

  • eligibility to entrepreneurs’ relief 
  • inheritance tax on a trust 
  • employee share schemes
  • status of workers
