Our firm’s Audit Shield Fee Waiver Service provides for the payment of professional fees incurred as a result of your filed return being selected for an audit, enquiry, investigation or review. The cost of being properly represented in these matters can be quite significant. Even if no adjustments are required, you could still be left with considerable professional fees if you are not protected by Audit Shield. It provides a fixed, cost effective solution to guard against these unbudgeted costs.
