Be Audit Ready

Even if your books are squeaky clean, the thought of an audit makes anyone’s palms sweat. Leaving aside the emotional stress involved, you have to deal with the disruption to your business and costs incurred in responding.

Tax Audit Insurance* covers a business for specified costs in the event that it is selected by the Australian Tax Office for auditing. The policy covers the costs of accountants and other professional fees incurred in the course of an audit. Being audited can be time consuming, complicated and can potentially result in a significant financial detriment. You will almost certainly want the services of an external accountant or similar professional and their fees can be substantial.

With the right Tax Audit insurance in place, you can at least minimise the cost of an audit to your business, even if you can’t reduce all of the stress.
