Why is Audit Shield different from other tax audit insurance offerings?

Tax audit insurance is more than just another insurance policy. In can be complex to understand, complex to implement and complex to administer. Only Accountancy Insurance has made the significant investment in people, processes and systems to make sure that Audit Shield delivers for you and your clients.

Will it cost me anything to implement Audit Shield in my firm?

No. Each of our Audit Shield client firms enjoy the services of a dedicated Account Manager. They will assist you with the set up and implementation of the Audit Shield Service, including the creation of a comprehensive client mail out to facilitate the offer to your clients. Access to our Audit Shield software platform is also provided to ensure ongoing administration is simple and effective.

How do I make a claim?

It’s easy! Simply lodge the claim via the Audit Shield Online Portal. Once the audit has been finalised, provide us with the audit correspondence from the relevant authority, your invoice and a copy of your WIP, and subject to claim approval, your claims are usually paid within 14 days.

Will I be able to claim all my professional time?

Yes. The professional fees you would normally charge your client to coordinate the audit response are covered (up to a pre-subscribed limit, and subject to the terms and conditions of the policy).

Are Workers Compensation / WorkCover audits covered?

Yes. Audits of Workers Compensation returns or financial compliance obligations initiated by a body authorised to conduct such an audit are covered.

What about Payroll Tax audits?

Yes. Audits conducted by State Revenue Offices are also covered.

So what isn't covered?

Fees not directly related to the audit response, or those exceeding the pre-subscribed limit, are not covered. See the Policy Cover page for further detail or contact us for full policy details.
