As the new tax year approaches, LV= is extending its Business Care service for business protection policyholders to include advice on tax and VAT issues.
All small business owners with an LV= business protection policy have access to the free LV= Business Care service, which currently provides a 24/7 legal advice line for issues such as employment law, commercial contracts, and health and safety.
LV= is now extending the service to provide business owners with access to business tax and VAT experts who can advise on areas including tax and VAT relief, self-assessment tax returns, and paying dividends from limited companies.
Mike Farrell, head protection sales at LV=, said: "Small businesses spend a lot of time and effort dealing with red tape, legislation and regulatory issues.
"Following changes to the VAT threshold and tax free allowances for the self-employed in last week's Budget, business owners may have questions as to what this means for them.
"We are committed to working with advisers to grow the business protection market and we believe this benefit will help advisers demonstrate the value and relevance of these policies."
