Audit Shield is renowned in the accountancy industry for providing comprehensive protection 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 audit, inquiry, investigation, review or examination of returns lodged with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) or other government revenue authorities. Thousands of accounting firms across Australia, New Zealand and Canada trust Audit Shield, and are receiving the benefits of extending the offer to their individual, business and SMSF clients.

Audit Shield provides comprehensive, cost effective protection against the substantial costs that may be incurred should the ATO or other government revenue authorities conduct an audit, inquiry, investigation, review or examination of lodged returns or financial compliance obligations.

The kind of audits and reviews typically covered by the policy include:

  • BAS/GST Compliance
  • FBT
  • Income, Land and Payroll Tax
  • JobKeeper payment (post payment)
  • Record Keeping
  • Self-Managed Superannuation Funds
  • Superannuation Guarantee and Compliance
  • Workers Compensation / WorkCover
  • Any query of any lodged return where the client is compelled to respond or act**
