Tax Investigation Insurance

Reclaim fees lost through tax investigations or disputes from HMRC

This MU members’ benefit means that you can claim a fee reimbursement of up to £100,000 in the event of a HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) investigation or dispute.

This must have occurred in connection with a member’s activities as a musician – trading as a sole trader, partnership or Ltd company.

This also covers Code of Practice 8 enquiries (£5,000 limit of indemnity) and Inheritance Tax enquiries (£5,000 limit of indemnity).

This is a summary only. For definitive information on policy cover, terms and exclusions please refer to the policy wording.

How to make a claim

You will need to make your claim in writing as soon as you become aware of any incident, cause or event which has or is likely to give rise to a claim under this Policy. Failure to notify during the period of insurance may lead to the claim being denied.

Initial notification of the claim must be made in writing by emailing taxclaimsuk@markel.com or through the claims portal on Markel’s website.

You can also write via first class post to: Markel Tax, One Mitchell Court, Castle Mound Way, Rugby CV23 0UY
