Protect Yourself from the Cost of an HMRC Investigation

At Honey Barrett we can provide you with a Tax Investigation Service to protect you from the costs that may arise as a result of a Tax or VAT Enquiry from HMRC.

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 tax payer.

The Tax Investigation we can provide is an all-embracing Policy that provides you with the ultimate protection.
