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 official audit, enquiry, investigation or review of returns lodged with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) or other federal, state or territory government revenue agency. 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 agency conduct an audit, enquiry, investigation or review.

What Audit Shield specifically covers:

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