6 September 2012

To drive growth in the fee protection insurance market, ARAG has entered into a partnership with Jim Hoyle, formerly of HLI Insurance Brokers (part of the CCV/Towergate Group).

Jim was a chartered accountant before entering the insurance arena, so brings with him a wealth of insurance and accountancy experience. Jim’s remit will be to promote the Total Fee Protection product to accountants.

Head of sales Andy Talbot said: “With the number of HM Revenue & Customs and tax investigations climbing each year, it is more important than ever for individuals and businesses to secure this insurance cover so that they are protected against the costs involved in such investigations.

“With Jim’s unique understanding of the accountancy market, he will provide ARAG with the springboard to achieve our growth projection.”

Total Fee Protection provides up to £100,000 to pay for professional fees that arise from HMRC full and aspect enquiries, VAT disputes and employer compliance disputes as well as providing access to Commercial Legal Services Online and the legal advice line.

And, let’s face it, that’s all of us.
