Tax Enquiries - Everyone is at risk

Anyone who sends in a tax return or business accounts to Irish Revenue Commissioners is at risk of a tax enquiry or inspection. Thousands of individuals and businesses are selected for such checks every year. If it happens to you, the questions will be detailed and time consuming to answer. Even if Irish Revenue Commissioners does not find any extra tax to pay, the costs to defend you could be substantial and can easily amount to hundreds or thousands of €s. Most accountant’s normal annual fees do not cover the additional professional costs of handling tax enquiries and compliance checks.  You can obtain protection against the potentially high costs of such fees simply and inexpensively by taking out Tax Fee Protection (TFP) insurance cover. 

Follow our step by step guide below to find out more.
