When the government singles out your business to perform a tax investigation, this process can be a costly affair. Average enquiries can last up to a full year and the legal fees and costs of hiring professional accountants and other specialists can run into tens of thousands of dollars.

Tax investigation insurance allows policy holders to make claims against these financial expenses, allowing their business to continue operating at normal capacity.
