Tax Audit Insurance

Gone are the days of only big business being the target of tax audits. As audits become more widespread, tax audit insurance will cover you for the expensive costs associated with being audited.

What is Tax Audit Insurance?

Tax audit insurance is a protects you in the event of being audited by the ATO or a State/Territory department. If you run a business, have a Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF), own investment properties or run a trust, you’re more likely than the average person to be audited.

To come to a resolution, clear and detailed records will need to be provided. If your transaction history, purchase receipts and other documents aren’t readily available, it can be a time-consuming and very expensive process to get the professional assistance needed to prove compliance.

While no insurance can pay any government penalties or unpaid taxes that follow an audit, tax audit insurance can cover the cost of a professional preparing your records so you might avoid any penalties.

How can we help?

With access to a range of quality insurers, and policies not available to the public, we can offer you a range of competitive tax audit insurance quotes. 

Our experienced brokers can help you determine the level of tax audit cover you need for yourself or your business. We’ll also identify whether an extension or standalone policy will provide better coverage for your situation.

We’ll help you compare the price with the coverage offered for each, so you can make the best decision for your needs.

Tax Audit claim example

James owns a successful furniture store that he’s had for six years. The ATO requested a full review of his business income over a three-year period. 

The cost of the review was nearly $16,000 in professional fees for an accountant to collate, verify and correct records for the three-year period in the format the ATO requested.

Because James had tax audit insurance for his business, those fees were covered. He was able to afford the assistance he needed to prove compliance and avoid any penalties or criminal prosecution.

  • Save you time and money by taking care of comparing and customising policies for your needs

However, it can cover the cost of preparation and investigating records to avoid penalties/fines and prove compliance.
