There is a good reason that more than 95% of our clients say that they would recommend Audit Shield to other accounting firms*. Audit Shield has proven to provide relief, both to accountants and their clients. In fact, Audit Shield currently pays more than $1 million per month in claims to cover the professional fees associated with audit activity. This is evidence that audit activity is prevalent and Audit Shield is an effective mechanism in alleviating the financial effects.  

The tax audit insurance offering covers the professional fees that help you, as an accountant, assist your client to respond to an official audit, enquiry, investigation or review of returns lodged with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) or other federal, state or territory government revenue agency. Audit Shield avails you the confidence to help your clients, while our team deliver customised and comprehensive solutions that meet your needs. More than 2800 accounting firms across Australia, New Zealand and Canada have implemented Audit Shield.

Audit Shield provides cost effective protection and assistance against the substantial cost that may be incurred should the ATO or other government revenue agency conduct an audit, enquiry, investigation or review. The comprehensive offering covers the following:

  • Income, Land and Payroll Tax
  • BAS/GST Compliance
  • Workers Compensation / WorkCover
  • Superannuation Guarantee and Compliance
  • Self-Managed Superannuation Funds
  • FBT
  • Record Keeping
